Art Moves

Moody Shadow Movements

Best for ages 3+ and their grown-ups (siblings welcome)

Join the movement! Children are naturally inclined (and designed) to be active learners. Whether moving during imaginary play, exploring new concepts, or responding to what one sees, the body teaches the brain to think. Art Moves replaces traditional sitting-and-looking exercises with engaging-and-interpreting, encouraging children to express themselves through kinesthetic experiences in the galleries. In collaboration with the Cleveland-based dance company, The Movement Project, a professional dance instructor and museum educator embrace a whole-body approach to focused looking and process-based art making. Please wear comfortable clothing for bending and stretching.

Free for members. $10/non-member child. Space is limited.
Registration required. Register online using the link / button below, or call 330.376.9186.

Book Club: The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner

February 15, 2018, 6:00 pm

Grab a beer, cup of coffee or glass of wine in the café and join museum staffers in the Martha Stecher Reed Library for a lively discussion of Rachel Kushner’s award winning novel The Flamethrowers and a staff led tour of the exhibition Heavy Metal.

The year is 1975 and Reno has come to New York intent on turning her fascination with motorcycles and speed into art. Her arrival coincides with an explosion of activity in the art world—artists have colonized a deserted and industrial SoHo, are staging actions in the East Village, and are blurring the line between life and art. Reno begins an affair with the son of a motorcycle magnate. Her relationship takes her to Italy where she falls in with a radical political group.

Book Club is made possible with support from the Bemis Company Foundation.
