Bridging Cultures Exhibit
Community. When you hear that word, what do you think of? Your family? The church you attend? The street you live on? Or do you envision something larger and more inclusive?
Manassas is made up of many different communities, all contributing toward the larger one that is the City itself. As part of our ongoing mission to instill pride and promote civic engagement, the Manassas Museum proudly presents Bridging Cultures: The Latino Community in Manassas.
This exhibit, the second in a series that seeks to share an understanding of the different populations residing in Manassas, explores the traditions of the local Latino community. It is through their values of family and faith, their traditions of music, art, food and holiday celebrations as well as their investments in business and non-profit services that make Manassas a strong and vibrant community.
