The Cuero Heritage Museum will host a grand opening reception Thursday honoring the museum's newest rotating exhibit.
The exhibit, called the "Geisha Girl Porcelain" will feature more than 700 pieces from the collection of Cuero resident Dee Henneke. The exhibit will be on display for three months.
The collection was donated to the museum by Henneke, said museum board chairman Wayne Adickes.
"It was a very generous donation," Adickes said.
Henneke became a serious collector in 1978. Geisha girl porcelain is made in the form of dining and household items, such as plates and cups. The porcelain is typically colorful and depicts kimono-clad women in pre-modern Japan.
Henneke will also share her experience of collecting the porcelain at the grand opening, Adickes said. There will also be refreshments. All are invited to attend.
