Dreams, Desires, Memories and Images of Conkal, Yucatan, Mexico
This special exhibition is the result of a five day community workshop that I led at the Museum of Sacred Art in Conkal, Yucatan, Mexico. Workers at the museum along with other residents of the town brought in family photographs and wrote stories for this web gallery. Participants photographed each other in order to create their introductory pages. In addition to this virtual gallery, there was an exhibition of the photographs and stories at the Museum in April 2003 with a reception for the community. -Lorie Novak
The workshop was sponsored by the Yucatan Cultural Institute, México.
