Centers of Influence: Dallas’s Mexican American Barrios and Their Leaders

Opening reception on Friday, September 21 from 6 - 8 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

This exhibition will focus on themes such as immigration, the historical development of the various Mexican American Dallas neighborhoods known collectively as “Los Barrios,” and the emergence of trailblazing community leaders known to be centers of influence.

Mon., Tues., Thurs. and Fri. 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturdays 1-5 p.m.
