Date

October 2 (Sunday)
Regalo Cultural—A celebration of Latino culture

As part of the festivities on closing day of our summer exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art, the Museum is participating in Regalo Cultural (gift culture), a one-day festival of arts and cultures that brings together four of the approximately nineteen Latino communities in Lehigh County—Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Columbian—to celebrate cultural diversity and traditions. Stop by for live music, creative-arts workshops, and food kiosks presented by local ethnic restaurants inside the Museum, across the street in Arts Park, and in the Baum School of Art. (If it rains, some activities will move inside the Museum.) Complete schedule below.
