Iconic candy names like Snickers, Butterfingers, Wrigley, Tootsie Rolls, Lemonheads, Cracker Jack and many more have all been produced in the Chicago area over the last century.

Smithsonian traveling exhibit, Beyond Bollywood, will be an opportunity for our community to see this exhibit that has graced the walls of the Field Museum as well as many others across the country. This exhibit explores the Indian-American life and cultural impact on our nation. Naperville is a true microcosm of this exhibit and the perfect venue and community to be a host site for this award-winning show.
Naper Settlement will supplement this exhibit with local components of Indian-Americans living among us, experiencing the life that is talked about in the content in the exhibit.
The exhibit itself was created by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), “Beyond Bollywood” features Indian Americans’ migration experiences, working lives, political struggles and cultural and religious contributions.
