Young People’s Ofrendas: Expressions of Life and Remembrance

This exhibition of student work is the result of a partnership among the MIA and
Austin High School, Thomas Edison High School, El Colegio High School,
and Humboldt Secondary School. Students explore world cultures’ reverence for
ancestors through Mexico’s Day of the Dead traditions. They create personal
ofrendas (shrines) to honor friends, family, or community members who have died.

Video Blogging 101

These two “Video Blogging 101″ tutorial videos were made to support the school partnership and exhibition project “Young People’s Ofrendas: Expressions of Life and Remembrance.”They were created by young filmmakers using basic video equipment similar to that used by the high school students participating in the Young People’s Ofrendas project with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. They are designed to be viewed by students as they prepare to record video blog posts.
