Chicana/o Studies Mural Workshop: Unveiling at the Migrant & Seasonal Head Start

Please join us for a special celebration at 3:30 pm on Friday, June 3rd.                      Address: 39839 Rd. 17A Woodland, CA 95766

The Spring 2011 Chicana/o Studies Mural Workshop (CHI-171) is proud to announce the unveiling of its new mural at the Migrant & Seasonal Head Start on Friday, June 3rd at 3:30 pm. After interviews with teachers, parents, and staff, students engaged in long hours of discussion to arrive at imagery that best reflected the important work that takes place at the Migrant & Seasonal Head Start. Located at an old school house just outside of Woodland, “la esquelita,” as it is called, provides much needed services to the children of migrant agricultural workers. Impressed by the dedication and commitment of everyone involved at the center – from teachers, staff, bus drivers, cooks, to parent volunteers – the Mural Workshop decided on the overall theme of “Commitment: Fulfillment through Persistence.”
