Worcester State University Student Presentations in Spanish on 'Highest Heaven'
The students visited WAM in March and each chose an object from the exhibition. Then, with the help of their professor along with the WAM librarian Deborah Aframe, they conducted research in the Museum library and wrote a paper connecting the art object, their research and their course studies on colonial narratives.
The event will be held as part of WAM’s Third Thursday events, monthly evenings offering live music, cheese and crackers, and a cash bar. The Museum will be open until 8 pm. Students from institutions such as WSU that have a WAM institutional membership receive free entrance to the Museum with their WSU ID. For more information about the event contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
