With one of the largest Hmong populations in the country, St. Paul is a treasure trove of the culture. Wonderful restaurants and businesses along University Avenue speak to their rich traditions, food, fashion, and aesthetics. In Frogtown, the epicenter of the St. Paul’s Hmong community, sits the Hmong Cultural Center, which boasts cultural exhibits and resources for the community, as well as one of the largest Hmong research libraries in the country. This week, the Hmong Cultural Center holds an open house for its new Exhibit Center, developed in partnership with Museology Museum Services and Design Uake. You can take a look at displays featuring Hmong clothing, embroidery, tools, jewelry, musical instruments, and other cultural artifacts, and hear about the center’s future plans for new interpretive exhibits that will incorporate interactive audio-visual technology in 2017.
