“I am indebted to my hometown and was inspired to give back to all who made this community one of the best places to live in America,” Taufic said in a press release. “I am working with a dedicated team to create the ‘Our Austin, Our America’ traveling portrait exhibit and a book of real American stories through a lens of diversity and inclusion.”

Refreshments will be available and people can register to win a family portrait.

If you can’t make it, the exhibit will be up at the library through December during regular library hours.
