University Art Museum to host second Mama Create-Ups workshop March 28

The University Art Museum will host the second workshop in the Mama Create-Ups series from 1 to 3 p.m. March 28.

We are pleased to invite the full on- and off-campus community to the second presentation in this series focused on the Family and Medical Leave Act with Dulcinea Lara, associate professor in the Criminal Justice department and Director of the Borderlands and Ethnic Studies program at NMSU. Part lecture, part discussion, and collaborative project, Lara will give a basic overview of FMLA through the lenses of legality and personhood.

Lectures in this series are free and open to all with or without children, this also includes babies.

Our OutsmART children’s workshop No. 2 will draw inspiration from the artwork “MotherLove” by “Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020” featured artists Las Hermanas Iglesias. This work showcases the intergenerational relationships between family members and the conversations that happen between their creative practices. Using recycled materials the children will create a multi-layered collage portrait of their family, including objects and visual imagery that defines the different relationships present with each member of their family.

Call 575-646-2545 for more information.
