June 22 – September 1
Latino Arts Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 22 at 5:00 p.m.
The BIG IDEA Exhibition series is proud to present its fifth installment, The Big Idea 5: Engage and Persist. Teachers at Bruce Guadalupe Community School (BGCS) continue to develop and implement art integrated curriculum through Advancing Literacy and Math through Art (ALMA). This exhibition commemorates the ALMA Program, which showcases the artistic knowledge and skill of Bruce-Guadalupe Elementary and Middle School students in 3rd through 8th grades, and includes a lesson plan overview that complements the art produced in the 2016-17 school year. We are proud to welcome the 6th grade class form UCC-Acosta Middle School as they join this innovative approach to art integrated education and exhibition series.
Artwork will demonstrate ALMA student’s exploration of culturally relevant ‘Big Ideas’ such as immigration, cultural identity, community, origin, perseverance, and the American dream.
Educators interested in learning more about the ALMA project, method, and artwork can register for “Cafe con Arte” on Wednesday, July 12, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. led by the Latino Arts, Inc. Managing Artistic Director and ALMA Project co-developer Jacobo Lovo.
Exhibitions in the Latino Arts Gallery are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a donation of $1.
