Wind down after school with some Ancient-American inspired refreshments while meeting other educators. Once your brain is fueled, you will join experts in the galleries to tour our special exhibition. The evening will also include a discussion on discovering fakes and forgeries by the exhibition’s conservator. Come back two weeks later when artist Francisco "Paco" Loza will show you how to make Arte de Estambre (yarn art), inspired by traditions of Huichol communities in Central Mexico.
