The Big Idea is a collection of drawings, paintings, ceramics, and sculptures by Bruce-Guadalupe Elementary and Middle School students who are involved in the ALMA (Avanzando Lectura y Matematicas a traves del Arte/Advancing Literacy and Math through Art) project. The ALMA project was made possible through a federal grant awarded to the UCC and BGCS in collaboration with UWM’s Peck School of Arts.

The total grant award was $610,766 which represented 67% of the total cost of the project. Non-governmental sources comprised $293,184 and 33% of total project costs.
