Kimbell Art Museum honors Hispanic Heritage Month

first_imgJake Foote Jake Footehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jake-foote/ Hispanics are one of the largest demographics in the Fort Worth area, yet The Kimbell is the only museum in the cultural district offering events specifically for Hispanic Heritage Month.Volunteer docents have performed the tours each Sunday afternoon of Hispanic Heritage Month, which spans from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The tours are meant to be interactive so that docents and patrons discuss the cultural importance of the works together.“The Kimbell wants to pay homage to all cultures, but we are uniquely poised in the cultural district to offer this opportunity to Spanish speaking patrons,” said Connie Hachette Barganier, the education manager at the Kimbell.As the education manager, Hachette Barganier has used the Kimbell’s connections in the community to pair with Fort Worth Independent School District and promote the programs amongst Spanish speaking students.In addition, the museum hopes to target family groups with a number of events that include both parents and children in the learning process.“We are all proud of our heritage,” said Hachette Barganier. “We truly enjoy helping Hispanic families show their children the beautiful art that was developed in their native language.” Jake Footehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jake-foote/ Twitter Facebook Facebook ReddIt Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Linkedin Twitter Fit Worth Corporate Challenge encourages fitness in the community Kickball tournament raises money to kick out cancercenter_img Jake Footehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jake-foote/ Previous articleStudents explore new library with excitementNext articleW.P.
