Event Details:

All Hallows Eve is much more than a time for costumed children expecting candy. Hear the story of how this agricultural celebration became a religious holy day and then a modern holiday, and how masks became part of the season’s traditional lore. Join naturalist Roxana Rose and examine one of Arkansas’ finest collections of natural-material masks, on loan from Hot Springs’ own Davis Tillman for this special program. Learn techniques for creating your own mask using leaves, grasses, and other collected natural materials from the gardens, over a specially-made base. You’ll leave prepared for the festivities of Samhain, Halloween and Dia de los Muertos!
