teaching gallery in support for two courses, including Anthropology 219 (also Art History 209), "The Art
and Archaeology of Maya Civilization: A Marriage Made in Xibalba." As part of the final project, students
in this course wrote labels for the artworks in the exhibition. The following is an exhibition guide
comprised of the student-generated texts.
