MUSD celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month through arts in the community

The Monrovia Latino Heritage Society (MLHS), in collaboration with Monrovia Unified School District (MUSD), exhibited an art show, Monrovia’s Past and Future Legacy, featuring Hispanic heritage-themed artwork from fourth- and fifth-grade students from all five elementary schools. With over 60 percent of the student population identifying as Hispanic and over 40 percent Hispanic residents in Monrovia, there was a real need and opportunity to highlight and celebrate the Hispanic cultures, which represented the “Future Legacy” of the art show.
“Monrovia’s Past” is the piece MLHS provided by displaying historical photos and storyboards of generations of Latinos throughout Monrovia’s long history. Many in attendance during the art show were descendants of those in the photos from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
