Taino Project Student Art Exhibit - May 7th - July 27th, 2013
PRAA/US Bank Exhibit Hall, 2958 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago
The Taíno Project is an ongoing educational effort of the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance (PRAA)
to teach elementary and high school students about culture and the legacy left by the Taínos
in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean.
In 2013, the Taíno Project impacted almost 450 students in seven area schools. During the
project, students gained access to comprehensive educational materials, created Taíno-related projects with art professionals, and participated in a lecture and field trip with a Field Museum anthropologist. The PRAA partners with teachers, principals, artists, and other professionals who work relentlessly to make the Taíno Project possible. We applaud the students' achievements and look forward to continuing the Taíno Project for years to come!
