What do you want people to know about your generation, culture, or community? We ask our 7th and 8th grade School in the Park students this question as part of their experience at the Museum of Us.

We hope our students find authentic personal connections as they reflect on spaces in the Museum, and learn about how art can be used as resistance against injustice.

At the end of our week together, students create a collaborative mural project inspired by the murals B’tz’alQ’ij (Thread of Time) in K’iche and K’ajlay Suum (Thread of Memory/Memory Cord) in Maayat’aan, which were created by mural artist Alicia María Siu and a group of Maya artists, educators, academics, and culture bearers.
