The students who are participating on the Young People’s Ofrenda project from El Colegio Charter School visited the museum yesterday and had a custom tour by one of the great tour guides (learn more about MIA tours here). They learned how cultures throughout the world created objects and artwork to honor those who have passed away. In this photo, Docent Maria talks with the students about Chinese tomb sculpture. Hopefully the visit to the museum will help them with ideas for their own ofrendas. What was the most surprising comment from the students?
“This museum is free?”
