80th Anniversary of Picasso's "Guernica": A Date with Peace at the University of Navarra Museum
Echarri, Fernando
Journal of Museum Education, v44 n1 p96-107 2019
As in the case of the 80th anniversary of Picasso's "Guernica," painted in 1937, museums can incorporate significant dates and anniversaries into their educational programming. The University of Navarra Museum has taken advantage of the opportunity presented by this anniversary to present an educational project entitled "Guernica," whose primary objective was to foster peace through art. This anniversary project was a collaborative one in which 946 individuals (primarily students) between the ages of 3 and 103 participated, using their creativity to seek a significant experience. In the course of the project, contextual synergies were established with artworks from the museum: "Mousquetaire, TĂȘte" (Picasso, 1967) and "Tombstone to the peaceful town that was Guernica" (Oteiza, 1957).
