Float Design Class Video

For the past two years, The Richmond Art Center has worked in partnership with the 23rd Street Peace and Unity Cinco De Mayo Parade Float Committee, Richmond High School and Latina Center Staff, and RAC teaching artists. Generously funded by the San Pablo Koshland Fellows, in this 10-week project, teaching artists and each facilitated an intergenerational Cinco De Mayo Parade Float Design and Build class for parents and children that culminated in two distinct large-scale installations mounted on flatbed trucks that were a part of the Peace and Unity Parade on May 7, 2017.

Videographer Lydia Neri documented the process and parade, featuring our students and staff.
