Want to learn more about kolaches and Texas barbecue? Austinites Lori Najvar, founder of PolkaWorks, and Dawn Orsak spent several years working on a traveling Czech culture exhibit that is now on display in Austin. The exhibit, “Texas Czechs: Rooted in Tradition,” makes its Austin debut this month at the Capitol Visitor’s Center inside the Capitol, 112 E. 11th Street.

The exhibit will be on display through June 9, and you can find upcoming events associated with the exhibit at polkaworks.org. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
