INDIA IN AMERICA: STORIES OF NEW LIVES May 13-May 31, 2006 Celebrate the richness that Indian immigrants have brought to America. Listen to oral histories Watch traditional Indian dance Listen to classical Indian music See the artwork of contemporary artists: Lorna Rockey Siddiqua Shahnawaz and Shakun Maheshwari Smell the scents and taste the food. With pleasure, I will also be showing the online "flip-book" Visual Journal of India by Dorothy Simpson Krause. Ragamala Music and Dance Theater have sent a DVD of their work. They are a company in which "old forms are used in new ways to honor the past, celebrate the present, and inspire the future." I am thrilled to have their assistance. This show was made possible with the input and assistance of the Minnesota Historical Society India Oral History Project and the India Association of Minnesota, and the Perpich Center for Arts Education Library. Many thanks are due to Polly Sonifer, Jim Fogerty, Dilip Mallik, Ram Gada, Godan Nambudiripad, Bhairavi X. Mahant, Ranee Ramaswamy, Sandhya Danapuri, Sandhya Gupta, Jeanne Iverson, and unnamed friends and neighbors who cooked, told people about the project and supported the idea.
