Art Inspires Art: How Does a Bird Imagine? What Does a Tree Know?
March 1 - August 31, 2014
Visit the Everett Children’s Library at Brooklyn Children’s Museum to experience poetry, interactive sculptures, and festive banners developed by artists from The Touchstone Center for Children. Celebrating 45 years in art education, The Touchstone Center was founded by poet and educator, Richard Lewis, and has resulted in numerous publications. These publications have gone on to inspire visual and theatrical arts education experiences in New York City schools. Featuring two interactive sculptures, “A Tree Lives” and “The Bird of Imagining,” this exhibit helps children to explore poetry and art, and learn how one art form can inspire another.
