"Nuevo Durango" by Caroline Snyder


"Nuevo Durango is a small Maya village located deep in the tropical dry forest of southern Mexico. I recently went on a biological research trip there with New Roots upper-school science teacher, David Streib.

My exhibition will consist of original drawings inspired by photos I took of the bright and bold flora and fauna in the Maya jungle."
