High School Students Highlight German Culture

Deutschland Through Students’ Eyes opens Friday, April 7, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures with free admission from 5-8 pm as part of First Friday Art Walk. The exhibit is being curated by German language students at Fort Collins High School under the direction of Erin Burr-Adair, German Teacher and Chair of the World Languages Department.
