Here We Make Our Home

Cultural Arts Curriculum & Student Group Exhibition

December 2017 – February 2018

Latino Arts Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, December 1, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

 

Latino Arts, Inc. is proud of its history of bringing world class artists to Milwaukee. As we look to the future we aim to continue our established tradition of exhibiting culturally relevant and thought-provoking art in our gallery. We are also committed to expanding our educational focus and mission to serve the greater Milwaukee area and all its communities with educationally and culturally rich learning opportunities.

In the past, we have achieved this goal through partnership with the Bruce-Guadalupe Community School and thematic workshops and our Big Idea summer exhibits featuring the Advancing Literacy and Math through Art (ALMA) artwork produced by the students of Bruce Guadalupe Community School. We are excited to announce a new opportunity for 8-10 schools in greater Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin area to participate in a group exhibition titled, “Here We Make Our Home.

 

This exhibition will employ best practices learned through the ALMA project, tasking lead educators from each participating school to construct through collaboration with their fellow teachers an interdisciplinary art project based unit that will interpret the exhibition’s title through the use of bird houses as a metaphorical visual element.

 

This project aims to create a respectful dialogue within participating school on the immigration stories students posses through family heritage or even personal experience. This project invites the participating teachers to explore with their students the visual, poetic, and metaphoric imagery that the migratory nature of birds provides along with the idea of home and settlement which a birdhouse can represent.
