Join us for this special children & family program inspired by the Threaded Traditions exhibit with Criss Cross Mangosauce! Quilting joins uniquely made squares of fabric, all different to one another on their own, but together creates a beautiful work of art. The same can be said for our community! During this program with the teaching artists of Criss Cross Mangosauce, we will explore Latin American song and dance that celebrate our unique qualities and stories as individuals. Participate in a craft (while supplies last) as we thread together the quilt of our diverse community!
This program is welcome to both Spanish- and English-speakers of all levels, and is best suited for young learners (ages 2-10) and families.
This Spanish/English bilingual program series will have visitors on their feet as we explore Latin American culture and traditions, and of course have fun while doing it!
