Workshop at the Smithsonian Latino Center

Last week, C&G Partners Senior Designer Mariano Desmaras led a design workshop organized by the Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC) as part of the Latino Museum Studies Program (LMSP). The workshop included a discussion of the firm's ongoing Latino-focused projects and a two-hour charette where the participants were asked to design a survey-style exhibition of Latino art. Mariano's participants were mid-career museum professionals and graduate students selected from a nationwide pool of applicants with curatorial, educational and scholarly specialties.
