MECA&D Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
(September 15 - October 15)

This year, Maine College of Art & Design is celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time that traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans through food and conversation, starting September 15. 

During this month, and throughout the year, the College will celebrate and raise awareness of Latinx people both past and present.

At 12:15pm on Thursday, September 30, the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion led by Margaret Brownlee will facilitate an important conversation in Osher Lecture Hall between students, alumni, faculty, and staff about why we celebrate the month, the importance of not making assumptions about a person’s heritage, and individual experiences within the MECA&D community. Speakers at the event will include President of Students of Color Coalition Julio Rivera ’23, Dulce Garcia Chegg MFA ’21, and Visiting Professor of Sculpture Ben Spalding MFA ’17.
