2015 Hands on...Culture Shock! exhibition

2015 Hands-On curators at their opening, April 2015.














Held at the Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts opened April 25, 2015 and closed in the summer of 2015. This exhibition curated by four students from The Academy for Technology and the Classics, is the culmination of an eleven-week program. The students met weekly to research and explore African, Oceanic, and Indonesian art from the Coe Foundation collection. This exhibition, in their voice, is the result of their discoveries. The Academy for Technology and the Classics is a Santa Fe charter school cultivating fearless learners in grades 7 through 12.
