Guam Celebrates International Museum Day 2015

It seems like lately I have been posting lots of news coming from Guam. This is great, especially since they are hosting the Festival of Pacific Arts next year. However, here is an update from Simeon M. Palomo, Director-Designee, Division of Guam Museum, regarding International Museum Day (IMD):

In observance of 2015 International Museum Day, the Guam Museum will be holding a mini exhibit on “Textiles of Micronesia” at the Guam Micronesia Island Fair.  This year’s IMD theme is “Museums for a Sustainable Society”.  One of the objectives for this year’s theme is to promote cultural exchange through museums. Therefore, the Guam Museum will be displaying some textiles from Guam and Micronesia, including purses, fans, clutches, and bags.

In addition to the exhibit, the Guam Museum will be displaying the latest renderings of its new facility at Skinner Plaza. Finally, the Guam Museum Foundation, Inc. will be at the fair to promote its “Legacy Brick Program”, where people will have the opportunity to pay to put their name on bricks to be installed at the Guam Museum facility.
