Inspirations: Art for Storytelling
March 3–July 3, 2020
Each summer the museum collaborates with the Manhattan Public Library to host an exhibition complementing the American Library Association’s Summer Reading theme. These exhibitions shape the museum’s weekly summer art programs, tours, and gallery activities. The 2020 theme, Imagine Your Story, celebrates myths, fairy tales, and fantasy. Whimsical art from the museum’s permanent collection will inspire visitors to create their own stories.
