About the Exhibit:

The Life and Legacy of César E. Chávez, Dolores Huerta, and Farm Workers

March 2, 2016 - June 5, 2016

Columbia Heights Elementary School students will pass along the lessons they have learned about civil rights leaders such as Dr. Marin Luther King Junior, Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta through two special projects at the Institute of Texan Cultures:

 

"A Digital Exhibition of Martin Luther King, Jr." is a dome show, utilizing the 26-screen Dome Theater to display student artworks dedicated to the Civil Rights leader’s work.

 

"The Life and Legacy of César E. Chávez, Dolores Huerta, and Farm Workers" is an art exhibit telling stories of the battle for labor rights. Originally founded 13 years ago with the help of activist Jaime Martinez, the annual student art exhibit comes to the Institute of Texan Cultures as a part of the César E. Chávez March for Justice Week. The exhibit continues into the spring.
