Event Description

The Qingming Community Workday on April 9th

The Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH) hosts the Qingming Community Workday on Friday, April 9th from 10:00am to Noon.

♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣♣

Join the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH ) Evergreen Restoration Team on a Community Workday to celebrate and honor the Chinese Cultural Holiday, Qingming.

The Qingming Festival, also called Tomb Sweeping Day or, literally, ‘Pure Brightness’ Festival in English, pays respect to Ancestors and celebrates the warming weather of Spring. It’s a time for honoring the past with a spirit of celebration that includes space for both reflection and renewal.

Drop in from 10:00am to 12:00pm to join MAH staff and the Evergreen Cemetery Committee, a team of dedicated Volunteers, in honoring this celebration by cleaning Tombstones and the Cemetery Grounds.

Tools and gloves will be provided, but you’re invited to bring your own if you prefer.
