Just in time for spring, the Mariposa’s new exhibit, Renewing Energies: Fairy Tales, Heroes, and the Wisdom of Stories is now open. For visitors of all ages, this exhibit brings to life some of the world’s most cherished tales with a little help from our collection of puppets, costumes, and folk art artifacts. Like other elements in nature, the human need to tell and hear stories is an ever renewing energy. Where do some of our best loved stories come from? How have they traveled? What might the stories we tell be telling us? These are just some of the themes we’ll explore in this exhibit and in programming over the next nine months. The Mariposa Museum and also our gift shop featuring clothing, jewelry, art work, and collectibles from around the world are open Tuesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
