Sun Prairie: Traveling Exhibit “Neighbors Past and Present: The Wisconsin German Experience

Tuesday, May 10 @ 10:00 am - Saturday, May 28 @ 5:00 pm

Free and open to the public

Display of MKI’s traveling exhibit “Neighbors Past and Present: the Wisconsin German Experience.” On fourteen panels that draw largely on images and resources from the MKI Library and Archives, the exhibit covers German migration and settlement in Wisconsin, questions of ethnicity and identity in newly forged communities, and the cohesiveness of these communities over the decades, especially in times of economic crisis or war. Specific topics include language; print culture; religion; Amish and Mennonites; traditions and social clubs, education; rural and urban life; business; political and civic engagement; times of war; and immigrants and their descendants in the global world, past and present.

This project has been made possible by a Major Grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
