“Slovenians in the U. S. Today” on Display in Ljubljana
What’s it like to be Slovenian-American in 2020? An outdoor exhibition in Ljubljana answers that question in English and Slovenian. “Slovenians in the United States Today” is on display in the art park in front of the Slovenian National Archives, the show sponsor, and is extended through June, 2020. The exhibition is curated by Joe Valencic, the Cleveland-based writer, historian and lecturer who traveled to forty states to ask Americans what keeps them Slovenian. Nearly all of the eighty photographs were shot by him. He reveals how Slovenian communities from coast to coast express Slovenian culture with festivals, food, music, education and organized activities.
