Celebrate Diwali, India’s festival of lights, on Twitch! The one and only DJ Rekha spins throughout the evening live from New York City. Learn some Bollywood moves from UofSC dance groups Moksha and Gamecock Bhangra, make simple and tasty Indian snacks with cooking demos from local home chefs, discover how to make rangoli patterns with colorful powders, and learn more about traditional crafts from vendors Peepal Tree and Shree Roopam at a virtual bazaar. Plus, get up close and personal with the exquisitely detailed art in the exhibition Visions from India: 21st-Century Art from the Pizzuti Collection. For extra fun, pick up a DIY diya kit to follow along with our tutorial and make your own diya, a traditional oil lamp. Kits available for purchase from the CMA Shop in November.
