Bridges of Understanding: Ceremonies and Festivals Exhibit Presented by the Mizel Museum
Bridges of Understanding: Ceremonies and Festivals developed in 2005, is an exhibit of the Mizel Museum which highlights common themes and rituals of different cultures. Ceremonies and festivals are a way of bringing community together - a way of enjoying the cultural and artistic life of a community - a way of passing down one's heritage and history from generation to generation. The exhibits teach students through an interactive presentation of unique themes and rituals from six different cultures including African, African-American, Asian Pacific, Hispanic/Latino, Jewish, Muslim, and Native American. As you explore the exhibition, you will discover that music, clothing, masks, food, ritual objects, and most of all community participation weaves common threads among the cultures represented. Through these celebrations and expressions, we discover both what is universal and what is particular about cultural heritages.
