Wave Hill Family Art Project: Dia de los Muertos
Suggested Ages: All
Enjoy nature-inspired art projects among gorgeous gardens and trees overlooking the Hudson River. Celebrate this special Mexican cultural holiday when the spirits of loved ones come home to visit. Learn the traditional use of the four elements to adorn nicho boxes, small shadow boxes filled with meaning and purpose that honor a lost loved one. Decorate your box with objects and found natural materials, adding a photo of your dear one. Using branches and brush from trees that have been felled during recent storms at Wave Hill, create an altar to honor the gifts these trees have given us during their lives.
Takes place outside on a grassy hill so dress accordingly.
