Children’s Story Time: Sitti’s Secrets

April 8, 2017 10:00am – 11:00am

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


Saturday, April 8

Story Time in April centers on themes of family and peace. In response to the exhibition Aftermath: The Fallout of War, we’ll travel to a Palestinian Village with a young girl visiting her grandmother in Sitti’s Secrets by Naomi Shihab Nye.

10:00am, Aftermath Exhibition Space, Gund Gallery.

We will also daydream about a peaceful future with an Afghan girl in The Sky of Afghanistan by Ana Eulate.
