Victoria Dominguez shares her experience learning about the history behind the murals painted by Spanish artist Luis Quintanilla in 1941. Victoria is doing research with Professor Viviana Grieco, Ph.D. "Don Quixote in the Modern World" features professors, students and famous Kansas Citians of the time.
“Our mentor/mentee experience parallels that of Quintanilla and [then] UKC’s students," said Grieco. "Despite not speaking fluent English, Quintanilla was able to connect with the students on campus and work with them as subjects for his mural. Still today, it remains true that these unique mentorship and student engagement opportunities can help students take the most out of their university experience."
