On Tuesday, September 16, 2014, from 3:30 to 6 p.m., join us for a Creative Fellow Open House at the opening of RCAH professor Estrella Torrez's Nuestros Cuentos exhibit at MSU Global. The exhibit is on display in the MSU Global Gallery from September 12 through October 30, 2014, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Nuestros Cuentos, or "our stories," is a collaborative project founded by Dr. J. Estrella Torrez, documenting the lives of Lansing-area public school children in the form of student autobiographies and artwork. The exhibition will showcase original artworks used to illustrate the children's stories, short video documenting the 2013 and 2014 Nuestros Cuentos projects, photos, a mural, and the Nuestros Cuentos books.

Collaboration partners include the Lansing School District's Mt. Hope Elementary and Pattengil Academy, MSU's College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), the RCAH, and the MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU).
