South Dallas Cultural Center
The Dallas Museum of Art collaborates with the South Dallas Cultural Center during their annual five-week Summer Arts at the Center program. Each summer the projects and activities are tailored to the program’s central theme, connecting students to related artists and artworks in the DMA's collections and special exhibitions.
During the 2009 Summer Arts at the Center program, DMA staff worked with a select group of teens to create an interactive presentation on the program’s topic, the Middle Passage. The group worked collaboratively to research, write, and design the presentation, and selected artworks from the Museum's African collections to highlight specific themes and ideas.
