Through videos, photographs, hands-on interactives, and carnival crafts, masks, and costumes, you'll journey around the world to celebrate Carnival. Venice, New Orleans, Basel (Switzerland), Trinidad-Tobago, Recife (Brazil) and more are stops on your exploration of how creative play and community combine. Although a Roman Catholic custom, Carnival is celebrated the world round with masquerade balls, parades, and more--and with so much flashing fashion and fun to be had, it's not hard to see why.Exhibit Related Programs: Feb. 1: Masquerade Party! 7:30-10:30 pm music, food, mask making, prizes for best costume/mask, $ Feb. 8: From the Backstreets to Mainstreet: the Transition of Mardi Gras Indians from Street Performers to Afrocentric Artists, a talk by Cynthia Becker at Boston University, FREE Feb. 22: Venice Incognito, a talk by James Johnson at Boston University, FREE March 1: Carnival Day for all ages, including shoe-box float making and moreTours every Saturday at Noon, given by WSU students and community members who grew up with CarnivalLook for films & displays at the Worcester Public Library during Carnaval!
