The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum opened its new textile exhibit, “Quinceañera Traditions” on June 2. The exhibition was presented to explain the historical and symbolic meaning of the quinceañera.

The Quinceañera Traditions exhibit will run through February 2023. It will feature stories from the Panhandle region about tradition and three generations of “quince” celebrations.

Deana Craighead, Art Curator for PPHM, spoke about the impact of the new exhibition.

“PPHM is thrilled to celebrate the quinceañera and its unique significance to the people of our region. Quinceañera Traditions tells stories from our community and has been received with tremendous enthusiasm. During these many months of planning, I was overwhelmed by the people I met and their incredible openness and generosity. We would especially like to thank our exhibit sponsors Dean Boyd, Los Barrios de Amarillo, Telemundo and Amarillo National Bank. I encourage the public to visit the museum to experience it for themselves.

The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum is the largest history museum in Texas, with over 285,000 square feet and more than two million artifacts dedicated to preserving the area’s past.
