Calendar: Live Virtual Local Views at PAMM: Darwin Rodriguez

Event Description

Join us digitally for our tour program, Local Views at PAMM, where select local artists and educators will speak about their creative process and artistic practice. Join Darwin Rodriguez while he discusses how we frame history, both inside and outside of the classroom and gallery. Rodriguez will also share digital resources with the public so they can access silenced histories and narratives on their own, perhaps for the first time.

Watch on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Darwin Rodriguez is a public historian and humanities educator that believes in the lowering of barriers to knowledge in order to foster increased cross-cultural understanding. A former Miami-Dade County Public School teacher, he is currently a lead teaching artist at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and an adjunct history professor at Florida International University (FIU). His scholarship has focused on massive traumatic events around the world, as well as how the Atlantic Slave Trade is taught in the contemporary American classroom. As a museum educator, Rodriguez is working to create opportunities for teachers and students of different backgrounds to use art spaces as a medium to discuss pressing issues that stem from their everyday surroundings and realities.
