Celebrate this special Mexican cultural holiday when the spirits of loved ones come home to visit. Learn the traditional use of the four elements to adorn nicho boxes, small shadow boxes filled with meaning and purpose that honor a lost loved one. Using branches and brush from trees that have been felled during recent storms at Wave Hill, we will create an altar to honor the gifts these trees have given us during their lives.

Registration is not required for the Family Art Project events, but visitors will need to reserve an admission ticket in advance online or by calling 718.549.3200 to visit Wave Hill for that day.

Shine only. Check the website the morning of for the status of the day’s program.
