Cortada's UM Socially Engaged Art Students
UM Professor of Practice Xavier Cortada launched his MCP Conversations with his ART315 Socially-Engaged Art students during one of their online classes. Prior to the pandemic, the class would be convened at the botanical garden where Cortada’s studio is based – Pinecrest Gardens. During UM’s spring break, the University began to implement epidemiological efforts that included extending spring break by another week and moving all classes to an online platform. During this conversation, students recounted their experiences in learning about and living through the pandemic.
