Inspired by the collections related to Japanese American history at the Center as well as at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, we will be participating in RMM’s California Paper Crane Peace Project for our March First Sundays activity on March 1st from 1-4pm. The project’s goal is to make 92,785 origami cranes in honor of every person of Japanese ancestry from California who was interned during World War II. Kids and adults can learn how to make graceful cranes out of beautifully decorated origami paper and either take them home or donate them to RMM’s Paper Crane Peace Project!
First Sundays is a seasonal series of free family programs featuring different activities for children and teens at seven locations throughout downtown Riverside. Sponsored by the Riverside Arts Council.
