The Wellkomm Centre in the Luxembourg American Cultural Center features one of the most fascinating facets of the entire Roots and Leaves Museum – the Luxembourg American Family Tree sculpture. Measuring nearly fifteen feet tall, this sculpture, a gift from Luxembourg’s Ministry of Culture, was crafted in the Grand Duchy using Luxembourg’s rich supply of steel. Its roots are sunken into the glass floor of the Wëllkomm Centre while its leaves depict over three hundred photographs of Luxembourg immigrants to America and their descendants.
The leaves of the Luxembourg American Family Tree were offered as recognition to those who contributed $2,500 or more to the Cultural Center’s capital campaign. The LACS offers its heartfelt gratitude to the generous individuals, families, organizations and businesses who made the building of the Luxembourg American Cultural Center possible.
