Farragut Fridays Painting in the Park

Friday, August 5, 2016 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Dozens of people flocked to Farragut Square during their lunch break on Friday to play an Omani spice game and paint majmars as part of SQCC’s partnership with Golden Triangle BID’s Farragut Fridays.

SQCC provided a table of Omani spices such as turmeric, dried limes, cinnamon, and cloves, which were once important parts of the spice trade that was integral to Oman’s economy. Visitors had the opportunity to touch and smell the spices to determine what they were before checking their answers against an answer sheet.

Visitors were also welcomed to paint a traditional Omani majmar, or frankincense burner. SQCC provided paint, brushes, patterns, and replica majmars for visitors to paint traditional designs or make up new patterns.
