Summer Teacher Institute: ¡Viva la Revolución!

Summer Teacher Institute is sold out. To join the waiting list, email education@mcnayart.org.


Educators learn about the expression of Pop art in Latin America in 1960s and 1970s. At a time of economic turmoil, political coups, and unlawful imprisonments, artists used the bright colors and graphic impact of Pop to comment on issues of civil rights, consumer culture, and identity. Over three days, experiment with art processes, learn from experts, and explore work in the McNay’s collection and the upcoming exhibition, Pop América: Contesting Freedom, 1965–75, coming fall 2018.


Teachers earn 18 hours of continuing professional education credit for attending all three days. Space is limited and registration is required. Fee (includes lunch on Thursday, museum admission, refreshments, workshop supplies, and lesson plans): McNay members $80; nonmembers $100. For more information, email education@mcnayart.org.
