Who Owns Culture? Museo Presents Na’cho Culture April 21

Conversación Contacto: Na’cho Culture is a look into who owns culture and when appreciation becomes appropriation.
Museo’s current exhibit: “Tornaviaje/The Return Route” features artifacts from Mexican and American culture with historical Asian influence due to Colonial trade. So the question was raised:
When does someone else’s culture become our own? And when is it offensive to borrow from our neighbors?
Join us as we hear from professionals in the arts, government, and cultural institutions on this complex but important topic of discussion. Event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
