Think about where you have come from, where you are now, and where you are going in our family-friendly Virtual Mindfulness and Movement for Kids! Join Aldrich Educator Susie Buckley and Education Assistant Lorena Sferlazza over live video chat to focus on our place in the present moment through guided breathing, reflection, and directional movement, inspired by the Museum’s current exhibition, Hugo McCloud: from where i stand. Children of all ages welcome.

Virtual Poetry: When Trash Is a Poet’s Treasure @ The Aldrich @ The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
Jun 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Just as artist Hugo McCloud employs discarded plastic bags as the colorful medium of the works included in his from where I stand exhibition, poets can use discarded print media to create poems that are works of art. So gather a stack of magazines, newspapers, and even books that were destined for the recycle bin, and join Aldrich educator Barb Jennes to turn trash into poetic treasure! (Bring scissors and glue, too). All ages welcome.
