Through homecoming, a fire drill, and the usual hazards of art (hot glue accidents in particular), Austin students have this week pulled into the final stretch of making their ofrendas. Most have only detail work to finish, like Gabe and his Cat in the Hat. You’ll recall Gabe’s tribute to Dr. Seuss from an earlier blog post. you might even see it in the museum, as this week our students select the 15 ofrendas that will travel to the MIA. They’ll also compose artists’ statements.
They’ve got a long way to go– literally, at least. It’s a hundred miles from the museum to Austin. Austin students have thankfully already covered the metaphorical distance between the end of the project and themselves: they’re almost done!
