A new, immersive digital exhibition and class resource is in development for the Keith and Catherine Stein Luminary. Honoring the Dead in the Hispanic World will present resources on one of the most important celebrations in the Hispanic world: the Day of the Dead.
Manuel Gómez-Navarro, adjunct instructor of Spanish in the Department of World Languages, is leading the project. The development team also includes Lisa Hunt, interim director of the Keith and Catherine Stein Luminary, and Carolina Viera, associate professor of Spanish in the Department of World Languages and manager of Project Scientia.
The exhibition, one of the first exhibitions to be designed specifically for the Stein Luminary, will take advantage of the luminary’s three digital walls, using interactive maps, photos, videos and texts to visually immerse visitors and students in the celebrations to honor the deceased in the Hispanic world.
The project recently received grants from the School of Arts and the Idaho Film Collection.
