  • Art to the Heart Series: In Silence with Frida

    Experience artworks in the special exhibition Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection in an enlightening way. Sessions will begin with a brief meditation to establish a sense of inner silence before visiting the artworks in the exhibition. After viewing the artworks, participants will engage in discussion about the art.

    Sessions are led by Guadalupe Garcia, founder of The Ant Project, a non-profit organization focused on decentralizing one-sided points of view towards art by creating spaces open to diverse voices and viewpoints. Workshops are aligned to the pedagogy of Reggio Emilia, an Italian educational philosophy that considers the student as a co-creator of knowledge through the exposure to meaningful experiences and the opportunity to express themselves.
