Family Art Project: Dia de los Muertos
Saturday, October 27, 2018
10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Visiting artist Paulina Perera-Riveroll shares this special Mexican cultural holiday when the spirits of the beloved come home and visit. She will show us the traditional use of the four elements to adorn retablos, small boxes filled with meaning and purpose to honor a loved one.
Decorate your box with objects and found natural materials, adding a photo of your dear one, if you like. We’ll also create a group “altar” honoring a former resident, the majestic copper beech tree that stood in the Shade Border, providing shade and beauty to countless visitors.
Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
