Vernon Larson Lecture 'Aprendiendo del Arte-Learning from Art' to highlight Ecuadorian bead weavers April 18
The Office of International Programs in partnership with the College of Education Art Education Program presents the Vernon Larson Lecture "Aprendiendo del Arte-Learning from Art" from 10-11 a.m. Tuesday, April 18, in the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art auditorium.
"We are thrilled that the College of Education was able to bring to campus these outstanding artists to elevate and celebrate global diversity on our campus," said Grant Chapman, the office's interim associate provost. "We are excited to be one of the many campus partners in presenting their stories."
This Vernon Larson Lecture is one of four events the Ecuadorian bead weavers will conduct during their time on campus. All events are free and open to the public.
Zoila Quizhpe Guaman and Zoila Alejandrina Chalan Lozano are Quechua bead weavers from Saraguro, Ecuador. They both represent the globally respected La Mega Cooperativa de Los Saraguros women's cooperative. During their campus presentations, they will share their lives as folk artists, and their success as artists to have their craft be their sustainable economic livelihood.
"We enjoy partnering with Trina Harlow, College of Education art education program director, as she brings her powerful international network to our campus providing a dynamic enriching experience," Chapman said.
Meet and learn more about Ecuador, the region and folk artists at this event.
