“We are extremely excited today (18 May) to be opening the exhibit, dedicated to Alvin McLaughlin. He’s a real culture barrier and this is steeped in tradition is what we call it. It’s based on many of the artifacts that were collected by Alvin, over the course of more than 35 years,” said Ms. Leshikar-Denton.
