Soup at Six: “Life of Death: The History and Culture of Death and Dying”




Nov 02, 2023


6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Executive Director Kim Kenney as she explores how the meaning of death and death rituals have changed over time.  Cultures around the world handle death very differently, from the sentimental to the macabre.  This new program will trace the history of sky burial, cremation, green burial, embalming, superstitions regarding the deceased, and more.  We will also look at the professionalization of the funeral industry and how it has shaped our view of what it means to die. Sponsored by Arnold Funeral Home.

Contact the Museum at 330-455-7043 for questions.

Cost is $25 per person and includes soup, bread, and dessert.  Pre-paid reservations are required by October 26, 2023.
