The Art and Books of Marilyn Anderson

The work shown on these pages is done in the spirit of solidarity with Maya people. Marilyn's goal is to affirm and celebrate the cultural importance of Mayan arts and crafts and to increase knowledge and consciousness of it among those reached by her work. 

Marilyn continues to advance her Pro Arte Maya project through exhibits, art work, publications and collaborations with Maya educators to distribute her Multilingual Mayan Languages/Spanish Edition coloring book: Artes y Artesan√≠as Mayas de Guatemala to children in Guatemala.
