Latin American Perspectives (Spanish 521):

This term we are focusing on cultural representations of Latin America, and as part of the course, the students will do an in-depth study of one Latin American artist (Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Fernando Botero, etc.) 

On Jan. 25th, the students will share their research by putting up a wall display at the OWHL's Art Gallery to educate the rest of the students on Latin America's artistic representations.
