Children’s Storytime with Red: A Crayon’s Story

September 21, 2019 11:00am – 12:00pm

Stories help bring art to life. We invite our youngest art aficionados for special storytimes thematically linked to the art on view. We’ll open early and have a hands-on activity just for kids. The galleries remain open after we’re done so that attendees can walk through the exhibitions at their own pace. All age groups are welcome, but book selections are geared towards Pre-K to Grade 2.

Saturday, September 21, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Meg Cranston’s exhibition Hue, Saturation, Value: The Archer Paintings challenges us to consider the complex issues around the naming and marketing of color. For this month’s storytime, we’ll meet a crayon who discovers his true color in Red: A Crayon’s Story by Michael Hall and learn that colors are for everyone in Robb Pearlman’s Pink is for Boys.
