Smithsonian Journey Stories — Upcoming events planned

Polish and Russian immigrants travel to the United States aboard ship.

Two years ago, the Henry F. Hauser Museum in partnership with the Sierra Vista Public Library, the Friends of the Sierra Vista Public Library and the Sierra Vista Historical Society, applied to be a 2014 Smithsonian Institution Journey Stories host site, and a few months later became one of six sites in Arizona chosen to host the exhibit. Staff and volunteers have been working over the past 18 months to plan a menu of related events and programs.

Journey Stories is a Smithsonian Institution Museum on Main Street traveling exhibit that tells the story of how people and their ancestors came to America. Each exhibit is personalized by its host community, and will include local journey stories from around Cochise County. The exhibit will be inside the Henry F. Hauser Museum inside the Ethel Berger Center, and companion exhibits will be hosted by the Ethel Berger Center, the Oscar Yrun Community Center and the Sierra Vista Public Library.

The grand opening of the exhibit will be held at the Ethel Berger Center on Feb. 22, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Events begin in January with an invitation to youth to be a part of the Journey line. Parents are invited to stop by the museum or library to pick up a worksheet for their child to write or draw about their favorite place to visit. Finished sheets returned by Jan. 31 will be included in the exhibit.

On Feb. 4, 1 – 2 p.m., visit the library for the Amazing Arizona presentation of “Orphan Train” which chronicles the lives of two children “placed out,” or given away at train stations across the country from 1854 – 1929. Light refreshments will be served compliments of the Friends of the Sierra Vista Library.

Creative Dramatics classes for all ages will begin at the Library on Jan. 24 and carry through the final performance, “Journey Through Life,” on Feb. 13, 6 p.m., at the Ethel Berger Center. Each of the six different age groups from babies to seniors will approach and perform a chosen story in a different way, and will meet on different days and times. All are asked to preregister with the library for these classes.

More events and programs, from the spring book discussion group at the library, to events around the county in Douglas, Benson, and Naco, will happen throughout February and March. For more information including program descriptions, brochures and schedules, visit the Sierra Vista Library’s website at www.SierraVistaAZ.gov/svlibrary, call 458.4225, or visit the Sierra Vista Public Library at 2600 E. Tacoma St.
