Holi: Festival of Colors!

April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join the New Art Center for Holi, the Indian festival of color to welcome Spring!

We will have art-making, performances, food, dancing, and music throughout the day. The Grub Guru food truck will be there with tasty food available for purchase.

New Art will be leading guests through spring-themed art activities (both inside and outside) brought to you by artist Monica Srivastava, and our event will conclude with the always popular color play, where you become the canvas for artmaking! You have the opportunity to participate in the very fun (and messy) tradition of throwing organic color powder at each other. Please wear white clothes you do not mind getting stained, protective eyewear or sunglasses, and bring towels for clean up afterward. Guests are welcome to bring their own color powder from home. There is no re-admittance to the New Art Center building after color play.


The event is free and open to the public. The event is from 12 to 4 PM. Doors open 15 minutes beforehand.

We will be photographing this event and by registering, you agree that there is a possibility you may be photographed and the resulting images used for marketing purposes (in email, social media, print, and on our website).

We ask that all guests be conscious of residential parking. Please refrain from parking on Townhouse Dr. Please be aware that parking in the Handicapped Parking spot in front of our entrance at 61 Washington Park without a permit will result in a parking ticket.


The Main Gallery can be accessed via a ramp that connects to the sidewalk directly in front of designated Handicapped Parking on Washington Park. There is an accessible bathroom in the Main Gallery. The Main Gallery connects to other parts of the New Art Center via stairs. We will be broadcasting performances held in the Main Gallery to our other large room, where additional programming will be happening. Any questions about accessibility, please call 617-964-3424.


This event is partially supported by the Mass Cultural Council and the Newton Cultural Council.
