Superintendent F. Gus Sánchez is pleased to announce the arrival of Mini-DIGIE to Chamizal National Memorial. It will be located in the Memorial's Cultural Center and available to visitors during regular hours of operation, which are from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day of the week, and will stay through March 28, 2016.
Mini-DIGIE is a smaller, portable version of the permanent Digital Wall located at the El Paso Museum of History. DIGIE stands for Digital Information Gateway In El Paso, and it is a vast, interactive collection of images and videos displayed on a touch-sensitive TV screen. The digital media interpret the El Paso region through time, neighborhoods and themes. "When visitors to Chamizal can see the landmarks that relate to our story, it helps them connect to our history. In the same way, Mini-DIGIE makes El Paso history personal by visually connecting stories to the places we see all around us," said Superintendent Sánchez.
