Current Exhibits

Last One In:
American Ideals
in Conflict with
American Attitudes

The history of immigration in the Lehigh Valley represents a sampling of the cultures and countries that are part of our nation’s history. This exhibit will highlight the many ethnic groups that faced conflicting attitudes toward their nationalities as they established a new homeland in America.
The exhibit in the Museum’s main gallery will run through the summer and will evolve in conjunction with lectures that focus on different groups of immigrants that settled here. The first display opens with an historical look at 19th century political cartoons that challenged the American melting pot and the impact of immigration on America from its earliest years.

Amy Elise Art Exhibit
Opening March 15, 2018
Trexler Gallery

“Life is like a canvas, a tapestry, and a puzzle. We paint on one another’s hearts and minds; we weave and stich memories and events, we try to put the pieces together so we can see the full picture of who we are.”

Local artist, Amy Elise looks through the lens of life as an artist, an author and a person with dissociative identity disorder. Her passions in life are her artwork, her writing and encouraging other survivors to know the truth of who they are.

She feels blessed to have the gift of DID that makes it possible to see life from so many different points of view. Come and be encouraged, inspired, and strengthened as she shares her artwork and journey with us.
