Story Time: Día de los Muertos
Celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at the Fowler Museum! Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives. Children of all ages are invited to learn how children in a Mexican town honor their dearly departed in a traditional, time honored style in Día de los Muertos by Roseanne Greenfield Thong (2015). This story will be read in English and includes Spanish vocabulary.
After the reading, families are encouraged to explore the exhibition uninterrupted before the Fowler Museum opens to the general public at noon.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of most months. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.
Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives explores the roles that art plays in creating meaning and defining purpose for people across the globe. Art is not only a reflection of culture but can actively shape thought and experience. The objects on display have all intervened in the lives of those who made or used them—whether to educate, solve problems, assert leadership, assist in remembering, or provision loved ones in the afterlife.
