Take a cultural retreat into Pre-Colombian art with this hands-on workshop, “THE CALL OF THE SUN,” led by Aztec Chief Jose Avila of the Tonantzin Yaotecas. Chief Jose Avila will open up the session in the Museum’s Labyrinth with a ceremony to bless the day, followed by an art session during which participants will paint Aztec and Mayan sculptures to take home and learn about the symbolic meanings behind the works and their importance to Indigenous cultures.
