Spark imagination, creativity, and a love of reading. Professional authors, actors and artists are bringing the world of children’s literature to NOMA in this new family program. Each month highlights a unique theme: July features storytellers from Young Audiences reading stories about museums and music. In August, actors from the NOLA Project will read fairy tales and Shakespeare. In September, artists Alex Beard and George Rodrigue will read from their own storybooks. All StoryQuest sessions will take place twice a month in the comfortable setting of the NOMA Museum Shop. Family activities will be offered after each StoryQuest to encourage museum exploration.
This week, artist and writer Alex Beard reads from his books The Jungle Grapevine, Monkey See Monkey Draw and Crocodile's Tears.
