Distinguished Chicano Artist and Scholar Tomas Ybarra Frausto will give a workshop "El cuento sin nunca acabar/The Never Ending Story."

Dr. Tomas Ybarra-Frausto was formerly the Associate Director for Creativity and Culture at the Rockefeller Foundation. At the Foundation, he developed the Fidecomiso Para La Cultura Mexico-Estados Unidos (The U.S.-Mexico Fund for Culture), a bi-national initiative that supported individual artists, humanities scholars and institutions creating new paradigms for mutual understanding, cooperation and reciprocal knowledge-sharing between the two countries.

He served as Chair of the Mexican Museum in San Francisco and the Smithsonian Council, and has written and published extensively on Latin American and U.S. Latino arts and culture. In 1998, Dr. Ybarra-Frausto was awarded the Henry Medal by the Smithsonian Institution. He is currently on the board of the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago.

During this workshop, Dr. Ybarra-Frausto will discuss life experiences among Chicano and Latino communities.
