August Sundays: Bonds of Protection
Create symbols of protection that represent your bond with friends and family. In honor of the Hindu festival Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) this August, we invite you to make your own wearable adornments inspired by traditional rakhi styles, friendship bracelets, and even gau (amulet boxes) from the Museum’s collection.
Family Sundays are made possible by New York Life. Additional support has been provided by Con Edison, Agnes Gund, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
Free for children and accompanying adults
