The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian will host an open-house reception, free to the public, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, to showcase a donation of five refurbished computers and on-site networking services provided by the Youth Technology Corps’ after-school training program at Evanston Township High School.

The independent nonprofit museum is located at 3001 Central Street, Evanston.

Local high school students will be present to discuss the program and how they rebuilt the computers and set up the Mitchell’s new wireless network. Light refreshments will be served.

Guests will have the opportunity to see how two of the new computers, installed in the Mitchell’s exhibit galleries, will be used to enrich the museumgoer’s experience.

At the same time, guests can take the opportunity to view the museum’s exhibits, including “Raising the Totem: Exploring Northwest Coast Indigenous Cultures” and “Baskets at Work: Utilitarian Baskets from the Mitchell Collection.”
