- CONTINUING ED
- PUBLIC PROGRAMS
- COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Just in time for Election Day, see what local high school students - working with Otis faculty members Patricia Kovic and Michele Jaquis - have created when challenged by the Skirball to explore why democracy matters.
Since September 19, the students from Lauren Kleinberg's AP English class at Granada Hills Charter High School have developed the project, Re-Creating the United States, collaborating with Kovic and Jaquis, In-School Artists in Residence, and the Education Department at the Skirball. Follow their collective work in progress on tumblr and youtube.
This six-week investigation of the artifacts featured in the exhibition, Creating the United States, which originated from the Library of Congress, has developed into a subversive commentary on the promises of the United States and will culminate in a student takeover on November 1 and a public exhibition and community gathering on November 3, both at Skirball Cultural Center.
Come see what happens when a museum, a traditional high school classroom, and professional artists come together to explore and reinterpret our revered history.
