Opening Reception: National Immigrant Heritage Month Text Size

Event takes place on June 05, 2017 at 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Wistariahurst Museum 238 Cabot St

Wistariahurst will be hosting a new show by Steven Huerta, inspired by the lives and stories of his family who traveled from Mexico to California. Please join us for the opening reception on Monday, June 5, from 6 – 8 p.m. Free and open to all.

Former California native, Steven Huerta, made New England his home in 1996, and now resides in Holyoke, MA. From singing to the visual arts, Steven has fostered a spirit of discovery that he attributes to his Buddhist practice, and the never ending inspiration he derives from his friends, and the experiences he’s acquired in this lifetime.

The event kicks off a month-long celebration of Holyoke’s immigrant populations, past and present. Mayor Morse will be present citations for two honorees in the City who have made contributions to the community as immigrants and State Representative Aaron Vega will speak on the importance of Holyoke continuing to be a safe and welcoming community for all people.
Live music at the event will be provided by Malgorzata Lach.
The exhibit will be on view in the Wistariahurst Gallery, Sunday—Tuesdays, 12- 4 p.m through June 27. Other National Immigrant Month programming in Holyoke will include lectures, expert panels, workshops and more.
