The Museum is the mirror of this city of 76,000, a learning center for its school children, an exhibition and performance space for its artists, and a meeting place for its diverse populations. The Museum exhibitions draw creatively on contemporary arts and crafts and elements of the permanent collection of photographs, manuscripts and documents, books, and artifacts of social history. The Museum hosts a number of musical events, as well as talks by scholars, activists, and artists. Non-profit.
