MINNEAPOLIS (April 30, 2014) — Using photos and costumes, Asian Media Access tells the story of Hmong dance, from its origins in China and Southeast Asia to the sometimes conflicting role it has played in both preserving history and embracing new cultures here in Minnesota.

In conjunction with the exhibit, two performances will be held on the Government Center North Plaza from noon – 1 p.m.; June 2, Hmong Dance Performance; June 26, Hmong Costume Show.
The Hennepin Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m., at the Hennepin County Government Center, A-level, 300 S. Sixth St., Minneapolis.
The exhibit is sponsored by Hennepin County Summer on the Plaza. The Gallery is a project of Hennepin County Public Affairs.
