The Latinx Library: Cartonera-making Workshops

The Latinx Library: Cartonera-making Workshops

Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Duderstadt Book Arts Studio
Calendar: Stamps Events

Inviting all Latinx students, faculty, and staff: express yourself, share your Latinx pride, and leave your mark on the University of Michigan!

During these two-hour cartonera-making workshops lead by artist and Stamps School of Art & Design MFA candidate Mayela Rodriguez, participants will learn all about the history of this Latin American publishing style, see examples of cartoneras from UM Library’s collection, and make their own exploring the question: what does it mean to be Latinx? The contents of these cartoneras will function like a Latinx reader: they will be a mezcla of original drawings, words, poems, thoughts, etc. with those of Latinx creators currently inspiring the Latinx familia at the University of Michigan. The final cartoneras will be collected and showcased on the Latinx Library, a pop-up exhibition in the lobby of Shapiro Library.

Workshops are completely free and all materials will be provided. There will also be light refreshments.
