The Museum and ICS are thrilled to host Holi, the Indian celebration of color for the sixth year in a row! Last year, over 2,000 people came out to enjoy classical Indian and Bollywood style dancing and music, food, storytelling, art-making, and gallery exploration.
The Museum has one of the largest collections of Asian art in the Southeast, so there is plenty to see! The day ends with a huge celebration outside to play Holi, which involves the throwing of powdered colors, a traditional part of Holi celebrations. Make sure to wear something you don’t mind having to wash! There is truly something for everyone.
