Dia de los Muertos art bridges cultural differences at Oklahoma City schools
Hispanic enrollment in Oklahoma City Public Schools has swelled to about half the district's nearly 43,000 students, according to data from the 2010-11 school year.
Irene Lam with the Gold Dome Multicultural Society said exhibits such as this one are about sharing and celebrating cultural differences and similarities.
“This invites more cross-cultural awareness,” she said.
Also, artwork from 10 schools is on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, in the hallway near the Museum Cafe.
“Never before has the museum had such vibrant and three-dimensional works displayed in our Education Center,” said Chandra Boyd, OKC Museum of Art senior associate curator of education.
