This festive and multi-dimensional traveling exhibition explores the origins, influences, development and appreciation of Flamenco as a highly respected art form on the world stage. Shaped over centuries by a multitude of cultural and regional influences including Roman, Sephardic, Arabic and Andalusian, Flamenco became a folkloric art form that began among the Gypsy people of Spain. Flamenco: From Spain to the U.S. traces the origins of Flamenco to its arrival in the U.S. and its rise as an international art form.  In 2010, UNESCO declared flamenco a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity
