Art in Motion- Guayasamín's Ecuador Unframed
This fall (2014) the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture will be exhibiting the mural Ecuador (1952) by Ecuadorian artist Oswaldo Guayasamín. The government of Ecuador commissioned the mural, charging Guayasamín to depict the history and identity of Ecuador and its people. This will be the first time the mural has been seen outside of South America and gaining a sneak-peek at the panels will be the students participating in the NDCAC's summer camps during June and July (2014).
Each camp will focus on the idea of "Identity" inspired by Guayasamín's mural while exploring art, photography, cooking, and creative writing. At the grand opening in September, the work the students create during the camps will be on display alongside Guayasamín's.
