Mid-show reception: February 13, 4 - 6pm.


A collaborative exhibition between students in Professor Inbal Mazar’s 'Latin American Legends' course and students in the painting courses of Professor Angela Battle. Spanish students interviewed Des Moines residents from Latin America and shared translations of the legends with painting students, who then created visual translations. This show is a dialogue between both forms of expression. For inquiries contact: Angela Battle at angela.battle@drake.edu  or Inbal Mazar at inbal.mazar@drake.edu.
