Family Sunday: Summer of Love through Ojo de Dios

Sunday, June 25, 2017GodsEyes
12:00PM - 4:00PM
FREE!

The Mexican Museum will be hosting our monthly Family Sunday event on June 25, in the theme of San Francisco's very own 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love! The museum will be offering children and their families a hosted art activity session to learn how to make Ojo de Dios. Ojo de Dios (God's Eye) was a common symbol among the participants of the Summer of Love and the counterculture movement. The symbol is believed to originate from the native peoples of the Southwestern United States, but was adopted by the counterculture since it represented perceiving and understanding the unexplored.

We invite guests to drop by anytime between 12:00PM - 4:00PM, and enjoy learning about the indigenous influences on the phenomenon of the counterculture movement right here in San Francisco. Like all Family Sundays, this event is free and open to people of all ages. Due to limited space, attendees are encouraged to arrive early. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
