Children’s Story Time: Giraffes Can’t Dance

March 24, 2018 11:00am – 12:00pm

Stories help bring art to life. We invite our youngest art aficionados for special story times thematically linked to the art on view.

Saturday, March 24 11:00 AM

Presenting new ideas takes courage, determination and confidence. In our Associate-curated exhibition “Smash the control images:” Idiosyncratic Visions in Late Century American Art, we examine artworks from the 1960 and 70’s that challenge convention. Our third story time features characters willing to take the road less traveled. Gerald the Giraffe dances to a different tune in Giles Andreae’s Giraffes Can’t Dance. In Patty Lovell’s Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon, we meet a young girl who won’t be bullied.

Art connects, inspires and transforms people of all ages and walks of life. Always free and open to the public, the Gund Gallery exhibitions and programs are also a regular centerpiece for special activities designed for families and children. Join the fun and discover new ideas and perspectives. This semester, we invite you to join us for Family Days, Story Times, and Frist Fridays in downtown Mt. Vernon.

Free and open to the public. All ages welcome.

Gund Gallery exhibitions and public programs are supported, in part, by the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council.
