Tucson’s Mini Cities Exhibit Opening Highlights

3 Aug

On Saturday August 1, 2015, the Arizona Historical Society Library and Archives launched the Tucson’s Mini Cities exhibit by fifteen year old student curator, Nicolas Rios. We had over 70 people in attendance for his presentation, which also included an interactive activity and a delicious map cake!

Nicolas has spent the last six weeks of his summer planning, conducting archival research, and interviewing community members for the Tucson’s Mini Cities exhibit to show the complex and rich history of Tucson’s barrios, districts, and neighborhoods.
