Kathrine, thank you for joining the CELEBRATING PLURALISM discussion. I
have heared of, but not yet seen the resource that you describe:
Contemporary Art and
Multicultural Education, ed. by Susan Cahan and Zoya Kocur from the New
Museum of Contemporary Art. Do you have any ordering information? As we
approach Valentine's Day it is good to know that there are some materials
that are "excellent example[s] . . . designed to go beyond the "heroes and
holidays" approach." Thank you also for the references about masks, e.g.,
North Texas Insitute for Educators on the Visual Arts newletter (Fall 1996,
Vol. 7, No. 3) and the mask unit that can be found at Amazing Art Room site
at http://www.in.net/~kenroar/masklessons.html.

To consider all art as material culture is certainly a major premise in
Celebrating Pluralism.

Graeme
