PMCA 1234: Free Fourth Wednesday Wee-Read

Drawing the Family

What impression does America and its culture have on non-natives? Find out with a look at the film posters on display in the South Gallery exhibition Hollywood in Havana: Five Decades of Cuban Posters Promoting U.S. Films. In the galleries, talk about how artists from Cuba created artwork to tell the stories of movies from Hollywood, then read books about feelings and coming to America in the Project Room. Finish by creating drawings to tell a story about family heritage.
