Storytime: Back to the Drawing Board

What are your ideas for the New Year? What do you do with an idea? Join us for a New Year’s celebration. Together, we’ll explore the installation Jessica Diamond: Wheel Of Life and read What Do You Do with an Idea by Kobi Yamada. Following the story, we’ll get creative by making works inspired by our own wonderful ideas.

Meet in the Museum Lobby.
