The Williamson Museum is excited to present images of Hispanic culture and history from its photographic collections in a new exhibit entitled Recuerdos: Images from Williamson County’s Hispanic-American Community.

The Recuerdos exhibit will open to the public on Friday, May 7, at 6:00 pm during the Museum’s monthly First Friday celebration. Many of the images featured in this new exhibit, which is open from May to November 2010, were donated to the Museum as part of the Recuerdos project in October 2009. The Williamson Museum invited members of the county’s Hispanic-American community to donate family photographs documenting life in Williamson County. Images from that effort in the new exhibit include May Fest 2009 celebrations in Round Rock, class photographs from the area’s Mexican schools, and eighteen portraits of Hispanic men who served in all branches of the military from World War II to present day.

In conjunction with the Recuerdos exhibition at The Williamson Museum, the Round Rock Public Library will also exhibit images from the Museum’s collection during the month of May. Join The Williamson Museum on Friday, May 7, at 6:00 pm to view these great new images and celebrate Williamson County’s Hispanic heritage.
