The Ohio State University Center for Latin American Studies proudly presents …

An Interdisciplinary Traveling Museum for K-12 Schools

The Ohio State University Center for Latin American Studies, with US Department of Education Title VI funding, has developed an interdisciplinary exhibit on Mexico as seen through the art of Diego Rivera to circulate to K-12 schools.

The traveling museum includes…

• An exhibit of 14 24” x 48” panels displaying information on Rivera’s life and work, a brief overview of the history of Mexico, and 12 large posters of the works of Diego Rivera organized by theme and accompanied by a short description. The panels are intended to be displayed on tables in an area of the school where they may be viewed from both sides.

• Folders for teachers containing:
o Panel-by-panel description of the exhibit
o Complete list of supplementary materials
o Teachers’ guide to the works displayed in the exhibit
o A lesson plan for an art project, clay suns (or masks), that could be displayed with the exhibit.
o List of Internet resources
o Suggestions for use by teachers who have used the exhibit with their students

• Supplementary materials including:
o CD of Mexican corrido music (Currently on backorder)
o Slides of the works displayed in the exhibit
o Children’s literature on customs, history, and legends
o Videotapes on related topics

The Center for Latin American Studies will provide the exhibit and accompanying materials free of charge to interested schools and asks only that teachers complete an evaluation and share with CLAS how they used the exhibit with their classes.

Contact Stace Rierson at the Center for Latin American Studies for more information.
