October: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
Second Sundays is a series for all ages and takes place each month from October through June. Programs are designed to showcase the Museum’s special exhibitions and permanent collections and enhance the gallery experience.
Unless otherwise noted, all Second Sundays programs are included with general museum admission.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is in full bloom at the Newark Museum as we celebrate the significance of flowers within Hispanic culture, from art in the Museum’s collection to music to tattoos to Latin divas.
Highlights at this month's Second Sunday include:
- Shake, shake, shake to the sounds of bomba and plena drum music by Segunda Quimbamba!
- Create a floral temporary tattoo design inspired by art in the galleries and have it airbrushed onto your body.
- Decorate a sculptural floral installation with artist Kathleen Granados. Then strike a pose for a fun photo opportunity.
- Show some love to your favorite Latin divas by creating floral mini-shrines with artist Patricia Reynolds.
