The Big Idea II: Making Connections

1028 S. 9th St., Milwaukee, WI, 53204
414-384-3100

 

It’s going to be a BIG show—young artists with big dreams and unlimited futures! Latino Arts celebrates the opening of The Big Idea II: Making Connections, a special exhibition of artwork created by students from Bruce-Guadalupe Community School, on Thursday, June 26th from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Latino Arts Gallery. The young artists created art as a part of their experiences in the ALMA (Avanzando Lectura y Matematicas a través del Arte [Advancing Reading and Math through Art]) Program.

 

ALMA is a research project funded through the U.S. Department of Education under the Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination Grant Program. The United Community Center; Latino Arts, Inc.; and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts partnered in this project with the intention of increasing student achievement in literacy and math through the integration of culturally relevant, standards-based arts into reading, language arts, and math.

 

The opening reception for The Big Idea II is on Thursday, June 26th from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m., and the exhibition will run through September 26th. Exhibitions in the Latino Arts Gallery are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a suggested donation of $1.
