Mexico Interdisciplinary Studio: Oax-i-fornia
Information Session with Raul Cabra

Surrounded by the sierra of southern Mexico, Oaxaca is a city of rich heritage that combines ancient indigenous cultures, colonial architecture and history, and sophisticated modern culture. This course explores the opportunities and implications of collaborative work with local craftspeople and artisans in a cultural context rich in tradition and history, providing an opportunity for a carefully crafted cultural immersion.

Personal work and formal experimentation are necessarily informed by an interaction with local history, arts, and culture.

Prerequisite: Completion of sophomore year and instructor approval.
For undergraduates this course satisfies a studio elective, a Diversity Studies studio, or an Upper Division Interdisciplinary studio.

For graduates this course satisfies a gradwide elective.
