Description: First, come to our FREE McKnight Fellows Demonstration Workshop. Then get yourself signed up to learn about the symbolism of pre-Colombian art, the ancient history of a culture's music, and maybe a song while you make your own sacred flute. This will be a fun and informative workshop with 2017 McKnight Fellow Xilam Balam Ybarra of Electric Machete studio in St. Paul. Participants will explore textures, a small variety of colored clay bodies, and the visual language of Mexico with an artist committed to keeping alive the cultures of pre-Columbian civilizations.
