El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

- Free and Open to the Public!

The Arts Council of Princeton and the Princeton Shopping Center present Princeton’s annual Day of the Dead celebration! Celebrate Mexico’s El Día de los Muertos with strolling mariachis, sugar skull decorating, face painting, folk arts and crafts, and a performance by Grupo de Danza Folklorica la Sagrada Familia. Surf Taco Princeton will also join us with their prize wheel! 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.

Power of Faces

Images from the global photojournalism project by Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang will be on display on the second floor of the library through November 30. Realizing that most of the nearly 69 million people displaced to refugee camps lost treasured family photos when they fled their homes, Menders and Huang bring photo printers into refugee camps around the globe, where they distribute portraits for individuals to keep. The context of refugee camps is intentionally cropped out of the images to focus on individuals, and not merely their label as “refugees”.  This photojournalism project humanizes the plight of refugees and illuminates their experiences.

The Beauty That Surrounds Us: Celebrating Princeton

Our beloved town of Princeton offers the photographer a wide range of beautiful subject matter.  From our parklands, waterways, and abundance of trees to the amazing architecture and outdoor sculpture of Princeton University, beauty surrounds us every day.  This collection of recent images takes us on a brief visual trip around our wonderful town and the University.


Dave Burwell’s lifelong love of nature sparked his passion for photography, and he is grateful to be a full-time photographic artist and teacher.  In his classes and workshops, Dave emphasizes the craftsmanship of photography, the artistic principles of design and composition, and the students’ personal creative process.  In his own photography, Dave strives to create images that express the wonder and beauty that surround us each day as we make our way through the world.  By doing so, he hopes to inspire others to deepen their connection with nature and more fully appreciate their local environment.  Dave has lived in the Princeton area for the past 35 years, and teaches at the Arts Council of Princeton, Princeton Adult School, and Princeton Photography Club, and offers local and travel workshops and individual lessons.  Visit Dave’s website at daveburwell.com.

Your Inner Space

Opening Reception:
Saturday, October 12 | 3-5pm

In their artistic work, both Ifat Shatzky and Mira DeMartino explore unlimited layers of human emotions, thoughts, and associations.

Their works, created in completely different mediums, evoke similar reactions of self-reflection on deep, universal emotions. Whether it’s Ifat’s landscape or Mira’s human figure, they all relate to inner space.

Working in different dimensions, Ifat and Mira both choose to leave their pieces raw, unfinished, and organic. They feel that precise definition of a  form leaves the viewer passive. There is an inner space of interpretation and finishing the piece by the viewer, who experiences it exactly the way he or she needs to connect with the message.

Their work also connects through the feminine or Mother Earth imagery, even though elusive at times. Whether it is Ifat’s or Mira’s creation, one can sense that light and elevated imagery adds to the metaphysical feeling that both of the artists thrive to convey to the viewer.

The exhibition of Ifat and Mira’s art in one space will be a powerful and unforgettable event, which will engage viewers to co-create with the artists, and activate their own inner space.
