March 23 @ 11:00 am CDT

Come hear Minneapolis artist Xilam Balam Ybarra and his wife, Rebekah,  introduce clay flutes in a traditional manner and share about their significance in the Mayan culture. The presentation will involve both discussion and playing of the flutes. Following this, Ybarra will do a demonstration on how to make traditional clay flutes.

Ybarra is one of the artists currently featured in Watermark’s exhibit, Madwewe – It Is Heard. This exhibit focuses on the ways in which we hear culture – through songs, words, sounds and more. Ybarra has multiple handcrafted clay flutes in the exhibit.
