Baptism and birth, marriage and graduation, a first job and retirement: these are just a few of the important events which mark life in the United States.

But among the world's cultures which have found homes in San Diego County there is a rich profusion of other celebrations, honors, and rituals, from a Somali ceremony performed seven days after a woman weds, to the scarring of a young Sudanese man's forehead to show he has reached adulthood.

Join us for a heartwarming look at just a few of our community's powerful life events, featuring items from Americans, Filipinos, Chinese, Samoans, Mexicans, Zimbabweans, Vietnamese, and many other nations, cultures, and religions.

Museum Exhibit opens April 6, 2013
