Join us for a special day, highlighting the exhibition Gates of the Lord: The Tradition of Krishna Paintings with a focus on two autumn celebrations from India, the Gujarati festival Sharad Navratri, and Diwali, a celebration of harvest and light. Create a work of art inspired by Indian traditions at activity stations throughout the Ryan Education Center, including the Little Studio for our youngest visitors (under age 5). Discover Hindu stories in a session led by a costumed storyteller. Enjoy dance performances by Mandala in a range of styles from Dandiya Raas to Garba to Bollywood, then join in a lively community dance.
