Lunch & Learn – Virtual

A Curator’s Perspective: the Mexican American Military Experience Exhibition

Virtual program offered online via Zoom
12pm – 1pm
Free program, but registration is required
Ages: 14 & Up

Join us on the third Thursday of the month March through December for a lunch and learn opportunity! We’ll be exploring topics related to Cantigny Park and local history.

At this Lunch & Learn, get an inside look at the “Mexican American Military Experience” exhibition (on display at the First Division Museum beginning June 1). This military writ-large storyline is a companion experience to Cantigny Park’s “Alebrijes” exhibit this summer and highlights select interpretations associated with 1st Infantry Division Mexican American soldiers. Krewasky A. Salter, the museum’s executive director, will share insights that went into developing the exhibit and discuss content that did not make it into the exhibition.
