What it means to be free?-Grant to National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library
The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library celebrates Czech, Slovak and American life. It is a museum that encourages self-discovery and asks what it means to be free. Through extraordinary exhibitions and experiences and storytelling of freedom, identity, family, community, human rights and dignity, it connects yesterday with today and tomorrow.
Two grants totaling $322,351 have been received by the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) in Cedar Rapids, IA. A grant of $175,000 has been awarded from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for preserving and accessing the library and artifact humanities collections after the 2008 flood.
