Towel project by Misael Soto.

Miami artist, Misael Soto (pictured on the left below), created this giant art project to make a statement about people sharing territory at the beach.

In the morning he brings sunscreen, snacks, drinks, and games to share and … lays out his towel.

Act Two: Study these pictures to see what you can figure out.  You can click on each picture and see it larger (as a class); students can view all five pictures on this Google doc; or you can print out this handout of the task: BeachTowelActivity-guide.pdf for students to work with alone or in groups.
