Owl and Panther
Museum as Sanctuary is curated by TMA employees Morgan Wells, Curator of Education, and Marianna Pegno, Community Programs Coordinator, and is based on their education program by the same name. Now in its third year, the Museum as Sanctuary (MAS) is a collaboration between TMA and The Hopi Foundation's Owl & Panther Project (OP). OP works with refugee families in the Tucson area who have been impacted by torture, trauma, or traumatic dislocation. Through this program, participants have become more expressive as they become more comfortable in gallery spaces.
Today on 30 Minutes, we're joined in the studio by Tucson Museum of Art Community Programs Coordinator Marianna Pegno and Marge Pellegrino, Project Manager of The Hopi Foundation's Owl and Panther Project.
