March programs include a Mexico City Street Food cooking class on March 15 and Faces of GW Students Photography exhibit from March 13-31 at 5:30-7pm.
According to the Mexican Cultural Center’s website, the photography exhibit called Faces of GW is a collaborate project that was inspired and designed after the National Geographic’s Faces of America article. This beautiful exhibit explores the stories of the students that walk through the halls of high school. Photographers were tasked with photographing and connecting with a student or teacher at this school that they have never spoken to. The heart of this photography challenge was to connect with other members of the GW community through their experiences, personal struggles and common struggles as they navigate the shared world of high school.
