Students in the Master of Arts in Spanish program will be presenting their research related to the Worcester Art Museum’s exhibit, Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art, from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection on Thursday, April 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event will showcase the students’ studies on the paintings and artifacts that are featured in the exhibition, followed by a light reception.
The students’ presentations are part of Antonio Guijarro-Donadios’ (World Languages) Conquistadors and the Conquered: Gold, Religion, and Colonial Culture in the High Plains of South America class, and seek to connect the artworks within their cultural contexts and the 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.
WSU’s institutional membership at WAM enables students, faculty, and staff to visit the museum free of charge with their WSU ID card.
