Mosaic of Cultures: Aurora’s Nepali Community
May 7, 2024 to April 6, 2025

The Aurora History Museum and the Aurora Office of International and Immigrant Affairs celebrate Aurora’s vibrant Nepali community with the new exhibition “Mosaic of Cultures: Aurora’s Nepali Community,” set to open Tuesday, May 7, at the Aurora History Museum, 15051 E. Alameda Parkway, where admission is always free.
This exhibition is part of the “Mosaic of Cultures” series, which promotes understanding of Aurora’s culturally diverse populations while incorporating the voices of those local communities into the city’s history. For the creation of the exhibition, the Aurora History Museum conducted a community outreach campaign to capture the perspective of the Nepali people in Aurora and receive crucial feedback on how they wanted to be represented in this unique exhibit.
“’Mosaic of Cultures: Aurora’s Nepali Community’ is a unique opportunity to delve into the rich and unique aspects of this community, including their distinct music, art, dance, religion and traditional foods,” said T. Scott Williams, Director of the Aurora History Museum “By showcasing these unique cultural elements, the exhibition aims to raise awareness of the significant and invaluable contributions of the Nepali community to Aurora’s history; this captivating exhibit also highlights the stories of individuals, business owners and their cultural traditions and history, and features cultural objects provided by community members, archival images, interviews and immersive elements to bring the essence of Nepal to life.”
The Nepali community in Aurora represents a rich tapestry of traditions, customs and cultural practices. From vibrant festivals to traditional music and dance, the Nepali community has added a unique and colorful dimension to the cultural fabric of the city. The exhibition will allow residents and visitors to learn about and appreciate the diverse cultural heritage of their Nepali neighbors. The exhibition will run through April 2025.
