Children’s Story Time: Thanking the Moon

September 30, 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, September 30 at 10:00 AM
David Diao Exhibition Space, Gund Gallery

In David Diao: America Beckoning, Kenyon Alumnus David Diao documents childhood memories of Hong Kong. During our second story time, we’ll read about traditional Chinese culture in Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival by Grace Lin and examine the immigrant experience in Hannah is My Name: A Young Immigrant’s Story by Belle Yang.

Family Programs at the Gund Gallery

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. Visit our the events section of the website for more information.

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.
