“Mosaic of Cultures” is a series of exhibitions that promote understanding of the increasing cultural diversity in the city and incorporate the voices of local communities into Aurora’s History Museum. The new exhibit aims to increase awareness of the Mexican community’s contributions to the overall history of the city, including highlighting individuals, business owners, cultural traditions and history.

Without a Home Exhibit

The conversations and connections made in the testimonials are central to the exhibit. Patrons will be able to meet over 20 Aurorans experiencing housing insecurity. Accompanying these testimonials are portraits and photography reflecting the nature of life on Aurora’s streets. Much of the photography is being provided by local street photographer Amy Forestieri. Through May 29, 2022
