SRJC Museum is happy to host a 2014 El Dia de Los Muertos exhibit and Workshop

EXHIBIT

Friday, November 7, 2014

Through a collaborative effort, the museum will host altars created by the Social Sciences, ESL, and Art departments, K-12, and community. Come and experience the memories of others and share your own. This day is about remembrance and tradition so a special altar will be available for you to bring photos or write caring wishes to your loved ones passed.

WORKSHOP

Thursday, October 30, 2014
3:00pm - 5:00pm
FREE

Space is limited so please call the museum for reservations (707) 527-4479

Have you ever wanted to learn about creating the beautiful paper decorations (Papel Picado) that are hung for all occasions? What about those wonderful sugar skulls you may have seen on altars? Now is your chance to learn about both and craft your own! Amanda Ayala will be back to lead the workshop and teach us all about Sugar Skull decoration and Papel Picado.

 


New Collection

The museum is happy to annouce the acquisiton of 30 serigraphs by Northwest Coast artists Robert Davidson, Bill Reid, Susan Point, Don Yeomans, and others. This collection comes to us in memory of Mrs.Barbara P. Narita, who was an art lover and collector. Our collection has continued to grow through the generousity of patrons such as Mr. and Mrs. Narita and it is though gifts such as this that enables the museum to share the art with students and the community at large. The collection is currently on exhibit in the museum.
