Day of the Dead 2016

- Free and Open to the Public!

The Arts Council of Princeton and the Princeton Shopping Center present the annual Day of the Dead celebration! Celebrate Mexico’s El Día de los Muertos with strolling mariachis, sugar skull decorating, face painting, and live dance performances, and food from Totopos Mexican Restaurant. Learn about the traditions of this rich cultural holiday at this free, family-friendly afternoon event.

Day of the Dead is observed throughout the world at this time of year (in connection with Halloween and All Souls’ Day), where family and friends gather to remember and honor those who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars using sugar skulls, marigolds and favorite foods of the deceased, and then visiting graves with these as gifts. This free community event is made possible through the generosity of Edens, Latino Princetonians, Princeton Shopping Center and Mi Pueblo Lindo.

Interwoven Stories is a community-based narrative stitching project created and facilitated by Diana Weymar, the Arts Council’s 2016 Artist-in-Residence. More than 100 3-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, will be assembled together for this one time group show.

“It is the nature of socially engaged art to present a project to a community while not knowing how it will be received or executed. It is an open question. The response to this project has exceeded our wildest expectations. Beyond the additional of a final show of all the fabric pages and a catalog book, each page is a gift to the community. They speak to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of this community.”
-Diana Weymar, Interwoven Stories creator and curator


View the Interwoven Stories exhibition, on view from 10/29 through 11/30, and let the pages speak for themselves. They are, quite simply, works of art that speak to the soul.

A Post-Election Conversation with Community Leaders

- Free and Open to the Public

A message from Mayor Liz Lempert, ACP Executive Director Jeff Nathanson and Community Leaders:

“In the aftermath of one of the most divisive and fractious elections in our country’s history, it is important for us to come together as a town and recommit ourselves to the values of inclusion, diversity, and opportunity. Much can happen at the local level, and we all have a role to play in shaping our community as a place of welcome and support for neighbors in need.

If you have concerns, questions, or are looking for resources to help you, your family, or someone you know, you can contact our local Human Services Department at 609-688-2055. The office is located at 1 Monument Drive Princeton, NJ. We are learning from residents that there is a need for support services such as counseling and we would like to help you get connected to any assistance possible.

We will be holding a gathering Thursday night, November 10th, at the Princeton Public Library at 7:00 pm in the Community Room. We invite all local leaders, non-profits and community groups to join us in a discussion of how we can all continue to contribute to these efforts. It is important for us to work together to reassure our community of our commitment to maintaining and building a unified Princeton.”
