About the Exhibit:

Honor: Student Remembrances through Altars

October 13, 2012 - November 4, 2012

The Institute of Texan Cultures has teamed with art students from the International School of the Americas for a perspective on remembrance in cultures around the world. "Honor: Student Remembrances through Altars" will coincide with the Mexican tradition of "El Dia de los Muertos." The exhibit will recognize similarities across cultures and engage in a conversation on the ways humans express honor, remembrance and mourning.
 
Students will prepare a series of altars/shrines to be displayed at the museum. A family day, sponsored by the UTSA East Asia Institute and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership, is scheduled for Oct. 13 and will feature the students explaining their inspiration and interpretation of the "remembrance" theme, along with lectures from ITC and UTSA experts on European, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican and other remembrance traditions.
 
The family day will also get visitors hands-on with crafts such as paper marigolds, commonly seen in Mexican remembrances; and paper lanterns, common in Eastern cultures.
 
Exhibit: October 13 – Nov. 4, 2012
 
Family Day: Oct. 13, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
