On Saturday March 27, 2010, beginning at 2:00 pm, the Museum hosted a seasonal program: “The Art of the Easter Egg”. The presenters were Tini Halácsy and Magda Temesváry
Magda Temesváry, folk artist and ethnographer, spoke on the symbolism of the decorative motifs found on Hungarian Easter eggs, and then our guests were able to decorate Easter eggs. Beginners decorated papermaché eggs with Tini Halácsy (Hungarian craft designer). The more advanced artists tried their hand with the “real thing” under Magda Temesváry’s direction. Part of the Museum’s mission is to preserve such ancient Hungarian traditions in our community.
