When navigating the reality of today and seeking to shape their futures, your students may not see the power of the past at work in their lives. As the educators of tomorrow's voters, leaders, and citizens, you know that history can serve as a roadmap and a cautionary tale. Explore the Museum's contemporary art galleries with the senior curator of contemporary interpretation to uncover the history hiding in contemporary art. Participate in activities that challenge you (and your students) to internalize the past, trace its ripples to the present, and take informed action toward change for the future.
