Hablamos Juntos Posters 2015

From the start, Museo worked with Arlene Gotshalk (Pajaro Valley Arts and Santa Cruz Arts Alliance) who co-piloted the course of the Hablamos Juntos | Together We Speak project. The posters focus attention on the artwork (front) and introduce the artists through interviews on the back.

These poster files print on both sides of an 11” x 17” sheet. They are free for download.

HABLAMOS JUNTOS: Together We Speak Book

The Hablamos Juntos project is a unique opportunity to bring contemporary Latino art to young people who may know little about it. Engaging youth, particularly Latino and immigrant youth, in looking at and interpreting this art gives insight into cultural material that is in some way familiar to them.

Seeing Latino images that deal with personal themes, issues of immigration and labor, as well as memories of community life, opens the door for youth to reflect on their own lives.

—Dr. Amalia Mesa-Bains, Professor Emerita at California State University Monterey Bay

Hablamos Juntos Banners

Funded by the prestigious Rydell Grant (Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County) Museo designed and printed a series of 2’x3’ banners for display in windows throughout the Watsonville downtown corridor. The Museo built a coalition of diverse partners including the Young Writers Program, Pajaro Valley Arts, Government, and Chamber of Commerce businesses for the first Watsonville Art Walk September 3 – November 3, 2016.

Hablamos Juntos Posters 2016

Expanding the HJ series in 2016 was based on a new book project with the Young Writers Program.

Museo’s work with The Young Writers Program led to an expansion of the Hablamos Juntos project. A new group of students enrolled in a Watsonville continuation high school were set to begin their Young Writers Program project. This second book is based on 26 images, the initial 10 artists and an additional 13 artists to round out the second phase of the HJ poster program. Artists were drawn from an exhibition at the Pajaro Valley Arts gallery and from Museo’s curation.

The Story in the Art: La Historia en el Arte

The Story in the Art/La Historia en el Arte is the third in the Hablamos Juntos series. Co-sponsored by Museo Eduardo Carrillo and the Young Writers’ Program, Hablamos Juntos introduces youth to contemporary Latinx visual artists of today,  and gives them the opportunity to respond to it in writing. The writing, paired with accompanying artwork, is then  transformed into books—printed, beautiful hard cover books.

The images and student writing can also be viewed in an online exhibit at Google Cultural Institute – be sure to listen for audio clips of students reading their reflections at the book launch.

Museo Eduardo Carrillo is once again making the posters used in the project freely available for download. Click on the image thumbnail to download the pdf file, or click here to download all the posters in a zip file
