Spring Break 2023: Nowruz

Tuesday, Mar. 14, 2023 – Friday, Mar. 17, 2023

11:00 AM – 02:00 PM

This Spring Break, celebrate Nowruz, the Persian New Year, with us!

Marking the first day of spring and the renewal of nature, Nowruz highlights the values of peace and solidarity among generations, families, and neighbors, contributing to cultural diversity and friendship among peoples and different communities. Celebrating Nowruz also means a celebration of life in harmony with nature.

Throughout Spring Break, join us for fun, hands-on arts and crafts on our front lawn! Decorate eggs, paint tiles, create a three-dimensional blossom tree collage, and hear stories, all in celebration of Nowruz. Plus, go inside to grab a bite to eat at Java Lava Cafe and enjoy our Summoning Memories: Art Beyond Chinese Traditions exhibition, open with free admission during our Spring Break week.
