2011 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ana will teach 12 weekly sessions to Mexican community members and others interested in Mesoamerican culture the visual language of ancient pre-Columbian symbolism as a source of inspiration for them to create their own designs. Ana will then help participants transfer these symbols to elements of our modern world, ‘everyday’ items such as clothing, curtains, and banners. By teaching how to embroider or paint designs on textiles, her students will  be able to implement their own concepts on objects of their choice. This Ana believes to be vital to cultural survival and maintaining and passing on traditions.
