Brought to you by The Big Read. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

Each month a community art project featuring some aspect of Indian art, family immigration stories, or reading, is being offered.  All supplies are provided.  Ages dependent on the project offered.  A full description of each art project is available at www.matthewsopera.com one month prior to the date of the project.

THIS MONTH’S PROJECT

Struttin’ like Peacocks: Peacock Folded Fans
The peacock is a symbol of eternal life in the middle east. They believed that the flesh of a peacock did not decay after death and they painted peacocks in peoples tombs. The “eye” in the feather represents the “seeing eye of god.”

Join us while we create beautiful — and functional — folded Peacock fans.  With this craft, participants can manually fold and unfold the peacock’s shimmery train feathers.   Free.

This month’s art event is recommended for all ages!
