About Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill
Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill is a series of curated programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience. Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, Story Time presents tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings. Story Time also leverages the Museum's own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view. Held every second Saturday of each month, each two-hour presentation includes a participatory art activity facilitated by teaching artists from the community, so children not only experience others’ stories, but also reflect on what they see and hear, and create and share their own stories.
