Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Event Description:


This reception will feature the opening of our Quinceañera Traditions exhibition paired with food, live entertainment and more. This event will be free to VIP and museum members.

Experience the historic and symbolic meaning of the quinceañera at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. Quinceañera Traditions is the newest textile exhibit to open at PPHM from June 2, 2022, to February 2023. It will feature stories from those in the Panhandle region about the tradition and three generations of ‘quince’ celebrations.

As a rite of passage, a quinceañera, is a celebration of food, family, and faith that encompasses both the old and the new. Quinceañera Traditions celebrates the traditions surrounding a fifteen year old’s journey from girl to woman.

 
“PPHM is excited to celebrate the quinceañera and its unique importance to the people of our area.” said Deana Craighead, Curator of Art. “Quinceañera Traditions tells stories from our community and has been met with tremendous enthusiasm. Over these many months of planning, I have been overwhelmed by the people I have met and their incredible openness and generosity. We would especially like to thank our exhibit sponsors Dean Boyd, Los Barrios de Amarillo, Telemundo and Amarillo National Bank. I encourage the public to visit the museum to experience it for themselves.”
 
In recognition of the diverse people of our area, this exhibit will lead our introduction of Spanish text panels to our future exhibits. An opening reception for Quinceañera Traditions will be held on Thursday, June 2 and a public viewing will begin on Friday June 3rd.
