The Rockwell believes that museums act as community centers – a place for safe and authentic arts experiences for all audiences. That’s why we’re proud to once again partner with the Southeast Steuben County Library for Art Explorer’s Story Hour.
On the first Thursday of each month, The Rockwell Museum and The Southeast Steuben Library team up for a story-time experience. Children’s Librarian Sue McConnell reads beloved stories with different thematic links to The Rockwell’s art collection. Toddlers, preschoolers and their caregivers are welcome; Story Hour is free and open to the public.
Each month, new and different activities for Art Explorers are created in connection with the book theme. Attendees are invited to explore the galleries after Story Hour for free, including a visit to the hands-on Family Exploration Studio at no charge.
First Thursday of the Month, October – May
10:00 am – 11:00 am
