Description:
The City of Austin's Asian American Resource Center (AARC), in partnership with South Asian Austin Moms (SAAM), is proud to host Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation from January 29 to April 8, 2018.

From the builders of America's earliest railroads and farms, to Civil Rights pioneers and digital technology entrepreneurs, Indian Americans have long been an inextricable part of American life. This Smithsonian traveling exhibition details the history of Indian Americans and their contributions to the United States from the 1700s to the present.

Created by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), Beyond Bollywood features Indian Americans' migration experiences, working lives, political struggles and cultural and religious contributions. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Museums and Cultural Programs Division is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute.

Through a vibrant collection of photographs, artifacts, art and interactive learning stations, visitors will experience the Indian American story and explore the many dynamic roles Indian Americans have played in shaping America. Complementing the exhibit, SAAM will host eight docent and educational programming days. Activities include group gallery tours, specialized programming that cover topics on Indian Immigration history, Indian Classical Dance, and Indian Jewelry, and special events such as an Indian regional fashion show, author readings, lectures, and a film screening.
