Martin’s Big Words Meet Barbara Kruger
Wednesday, January 18
Lower Level

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we will explore the power of big words. After viewing the very big words used in Barbara Kruger’s installation Belief + Doubt, we will read Martin’s Big Words by Doreen Rappaport. Then we’ll create a mini-installation of our own, using our own big words to share a message of love and kindness.

A Seed is Sleepy

In celebration of the opening of Orchids in the Hirshhorn lobby, we’ll investigate plant life through the amazing journey of seeds! After a read-aloud of A Seed is Sleepy by Diana Hutts Aston, we will look closely at orchid flowers and create our own seed mosaics.
