September Sundays: Sugar & Spice
Break the rules and play with your food! Make sculptures out of sugar and spice, inspired by chalimidi, a sweet rice flour dish made during the Hindu festival Vinayaka Chaturthi. During this early September festival, chalimidi is offered to one of the most popular Hindu deities, Ganesha, the elephant-headed “Remover of Obstacles.” Try to spot him holding a bowl of sweets in the Museum’s galleries.
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
