Young People’s Ofrendas 2013

Oscar Gonzalez - ECHS

September 3 marks the official kick off of “Young People’s Ofrendas: Expressions of Life and Remembrance” for 2013. Now in its 6th year, this unique museum-school partnership begins in the art classrooms of three Minnesota high schools and culminates in an exhibition of students’ ofrendas (shrines to honor ancestors) at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Follow along and engage with the project as we chronicle its progress through blog posts by museum staff and video blogs by students reflecting at various points along the way on who they plan to honor with an ofrenda and how. Also stay in touch with the project on Twitter (@artsmia_ofrenda).
