Fire and Light: Winter Solstice Traditions opens Friday, December 1, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures with free admission from 5-8 pm as part of First Friday Art Walk. For centuries, cultures across the world have commemorated the winter solstice with unique festivals and rituals, and themes of fire and light are common threads in these traditions. The Museum has invited representatives from religious and spiritual organizations to create displays of objects and information that showcase their customs. The goal of the exhibit is to expand our worldview of global holidays and traditions that are celebrated here in Fort Collins. The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue, and Museum hours are 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, visit globalvillagemuseum.org or call 970-221-4600.
