Enjoy an evening of dance, tours, and art making at the MFA to celebrate Diwali. This Festival of Lights is enjoyed around the world by many cultures and religions—hear a lecture on the topic; tour the galleries exploring works of art related to the Hindu, Jain, and Sikh religions; and watch a festive performance by Chhandika, a group of Kathak dancers who use swift and precise footwork to tell traditional Indian stories.
