Take Your Place/Toma tu lugar

11:00am to 12:00pm

Location: 

Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, 11 Divinity Avenue
The ethnic communities “displayed” in the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair introduced Americans to different cultures. But the exposition also promoted stereotypes. Now, 130 years later, Latinx teens in the Hear Me Out/Escúchame project will exhibit a collaboratively made piece of art inspired by the exhibition All the World Is Here to challenge stereotypes. Drop in to respond and create your own piece with simple art materials for “submission” to an imaginary 2023 World’s Fair. Take your place with us and share how you want to be represented.
