Giant beach towel

Beaches are starting to open again. Bring summertime smiles and hopes to your class with this activity.

Act One: Check out this beach towel!  What do you wonder? What would you like to know?


Towel project by Misael Soto.

Miami artist, Misael Soto, created this giant art project to make a statement about people sharing.

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