Event News: “Building Bridges: Museums, Communities and Latin American Art”

unnamedJoin the Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) at Teachers College, Columbia University as they discuss the intersection between museums, education and diverse communities in their upcoming event, “Building Bridges: Museums, Communities and Latin American Art.” This talk is part of the organization’s “Serie en Conversaciones.”

Given the increasing international recognition of Latin American art and its presence in collections and exhibitions in local art museums, this panel seeks to explore the connection between museums and its surrounding diverse communities, the societal influence of museums that exhibit Latin American art, and the role of these museums in promoting cultural diversity. Our featured guests include Remei Capdevila from El Museo del Barrio and Nung-Hsin Hu from Queens Museum, who will engage in a conversation moderated by Teachers College faculty member, Olga Hubard.
