The Nasher Museum’s exhibition Pop America, 1965-1975 has inspired teachers and children at Immersion for Spanish Language Acquisition (ISLA), a weekly heritage language immersion program in Chapel Hill. The students studied Pop art by Latino/a and Latin American artists in the exhibition and then made paintings and collage in response. Recently, the children enjoyed seeing their work on the walls at their own exhibition, “ISLA Exposición.” Immersion for Spanish Language Acquisition (ISLA) Los Sábados is for children ages 4 to 14 and aims to close the achievement gap and open doors for Hispanic/Latino youth.

Last fall, the museum’s Academic Initiatives staff began a program to train undergraduate students in Duke’s Romance Studies Department to provide Spanish-speaking tours of the Nasher to ISLA students.
