What's in the
Community Gallery?

"Folk Art & Familia: Celebrating our Hispanic Heritage" features student works based on the traditional folk art of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Panama, reflecting the unique cultural aesthetics of their communities here in Annapolis and fostering a greater appreciation of Hispanic history, art, and culture.

This exhibit was developed in partnership with the student art program at Marshall Learning Center, supported by Jóvenes Artistas through Maryland Hall, with special assistance from The Key School.
