Imagine hundreds of paper lanterns floating on water and glowing warmly from their individual source of flickering light – a candle’s flame. Together, they become a soulful display of community spirit. CAM’s Floating Lantern Ceremony is an opportunity for expressions of Remembrance, Reflection and Gratitude. Participants are encouraged to personalize a paper lantern sleeve to float on CAM’s reflecting pond.
Lantern sleeves are available for purchase ($12 through Jan. 11, $15 on Jan. 12) throughout the ceremony.

This is an outisde activity; the museum and exhibitions will remain open until 7 PM. Food and beverage available for purchase. All exhibitions including Illumination are open at no charge, donations are appreciated.
