Currently in progress, the new Italian American Museum (IAM) will serve as a cultural hub and community nexus for Italian Americans and the Little Italy neighborhood. Through permanent and temporary exhibits, robust educational and cultural programming, and collaborations with the community, the IAM will become the preeminent center for learning about and engaging with the Italian American Community. As a platform for sharing Italian American voices and celebrating Italian American achievements, the IAM will bring Italian American culture and heritage to younger generations and a wide range of new audiences.
The exhibits, which will house hundreds of artifacts, images, and multi-media experiences, will share the history of Italian American immigrants from the early years of our country to today. Stories touch on cultural heritage, immigrant experiences, the challenges of assimilation, major Italian American achievements, and the influence of Italian Americans on America as we know it.
Luci Creative is now in the Schematic Design phase. Completion and opening of the new Italian American Museum is anticipated for 2022.
