UNO Spanish Students to Give Tour of Joslyn Nov. 17
Omaha - On Saturday, Nov. 17 at 11:30 a.m., University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students taking Advanced Spanish Conversation will lead a Spanish gallery tour at Joslyn Art Museum.
UNO students will have the opportunity to apply their classroom conversation practice to a real life situation as they give their presentations and interact with Latino audiences.
The event is free and open to the public; attendees should meet in the ConAgra Foods Atrium.
Joslyn Art Museum, 2200 Dodge St., will be open Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free admission until noon. The Spanish gallery experience is a part of a service-learning course at UNO where students apply their classroom learning to a community need.
Prior to the tour, the students will provide senior citizens from the Intercultural Senior Center with highlights of the Museum’s permanent collection on Thursday, Nov. 15.
With both events, by engaging in intergenerational and intercultural dialogue, students will actively connect with the local community to make Omaha art more easily accessible to a broader public.
