Immigrant Journeys

A public event at the Sun Prairie Municipal Building in the Community Room will discuss the traveling exhibit "Immigration Journeys from South of the Border," created by the Wisconsin Humanities Council in partnership with Centro Hispano, that is currently on display on both floors of the Municipal Building (above, three large panels posted near the Council Chambers on the second floor) at 300 E. Main St. The panel discussion is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.

The public is invited to attend "A Conversation on Cultural Diversity and Immigration in Wisconsin" at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at the Sun Prairie Municipal Building, 300 E. Main St.

The public is invited to join the Wisconsin Humanities Council and the Historical Library and Museum staff for a discussion on the current traveling exhibit “Immigration Journeys from South of the Border."

The exhibit is on display at the Sun Prairie Municipal Building, both on the first and second floors.

Sun Prairie Historical Museum Director Helen Wirka said the exhibit was created as part of a project conducted by the Wisconsin Humanities Council in conjunction with Centro Hispano; for more, check out a link to their work at

"With the museum floors being finished this week, we moved the rest of the exhibit to the second floor of City Hall," Wirka said.

"Tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 28th, we will have a panel discussion about cultural diversity and immigration in Wisconsin. We hope you will join us in the Large Community Room at 5:30 p.m.," Wirka added. "We invite you to share this invitation with your colleagues, neighbors, civic groups and constituents as well."

This isn't a diversity event at all. This is an open border propoganda event. As such, I wonder why it's ok for it to take place at City Hall? Can you imagine the outrage if someone suggested a "Build the Wall" exhibition? Our mayor would wet his pants.
