For the third year in a row, the Spanish Department has showcased a traveling exhibit during Hispanic Heritage Month to highlight a famous Hispanic artist. The exhibit is located in the Resource Center. Salvador Dalí was the first featured artist in 2015. Diego Rivera was showcased in 2016, and this year’s exhibit features Frida Kahlo, a Mexican painter famous for her bold self-portraits. For two weeks, teachers can bring their classes to the library and use the exhibit in their assignments. Spanish teacher Andrew Dykema used the exhibit to teach his students about looking at and analyzing art, self-image and beauty standards, and the relationship between Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The class also watched a short film about the Museo Casa Azul in Mexico. The exhibit is on display until Thursday.
