This Saturday, Price Hill Will, with the assistance of local Guatemalan artist Hugo Stuardo Ramirez Carrasco and Price Hill artist Lizzy DuQuette, will lead the community in the Latin American tradition of making colorful sawdust carpets called “alfombras.” Traditionally, alfombra-making begins on the last Sunday before Easter and, much like the sandpainting practiced by Southwestern Native Americans or Buddhist monks in Tibet, is a reminder of the impermanence of life. There will be other art-making activities throughout the day, including opportunities to make your own mini alfombras using designs created by students at the Center for Interfaith Community Engagement, plus a concert by the MYCincinnati Bucketeers at 2:30 p.m.


11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. Free. Warsaw Firehouse, 3120 Warsaw Ave., Price Hill, mycincinnatiorchestra.org.
