TV Asia network named media sponsor for exhibit on Indian American history and culture

Jan 04, 2013 (PRNewsChannel.com via COMTEX) -- PR NewsChannel WASHINGTON TV Asia network has teamed up with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center as the media sponsor for the upcoming exhibition, "Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation." This exhibition for the center will bring to life the rich history of immigrants from India and Indian Americans in the United States and detail their many contributions to America. Through a collection of photographs, artifacts, videos, interactive stations and stories, visitors will learn about the Indian American experience and the many dynamic roles they have played in shaping American society and culture.


"The Indian American story has yet to be fully told," said Konrad Ng, director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. "Visitors of all ages will leave the exhibition with a deeper understanding of this vibrant community as they strive to realize life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in America. This exhibition is about celebrating a community that embodies the American spirit." "Beyond Bollywood" is scheduled to open in late 2013, and it will occupy more than 5,000 square feet of space at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Over a two-year period the exhibition is expected to draw more than 7 million visitors before embarking on a national tour in 2015. "Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation" is the largest project undertaken by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center in its 15-year history, and the first to focus on Indian American culture. "The success of this initiative relies greatly on our ability to engage the public in the months leading up to the exhibition opening," said Ng. "By partnering with TV Asia, we have taken an important step in increasing the public's knowledge and understanding of this exhibition." "'Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation' is a project of monumental significance to our community and TV Asia," said H.R. Shah, chairman and CEO of TV Asia. "As a media sponsor we are honored and excited to be a part of this program." TV Asia is celebrating its 20th year in United States with a headquarters in New Jersey, and it is a part of the growth of the Indian American community. The "Beyond Bollywood" exhibition supplements TV Asia's mission to promote and celebrate the community and its achievements in the United States.

"There is still some public perception that we as Indian Americans are foreigners or outsiders in the United States," said Masum Momaya, curator of the exhibition. "But history shows the opposite is true. We've been here since the earliest days of the nation and had our hands in building it to what it is todayaEUR"politically, professionally and culturally. TV Asia connects to the Indian American community day in and day out."
