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 Explorers’ Story Hour.
On the first Thursday of each month, from 10-11 a.m. at The Rockwell Museum, Children’s Librarian Sue McConnell reads beloved stories thematically linked to The Rockwell’s art collection. Families are then invited to explore the Museum and socialize with games and activities, connecting little ones to authentic arts experiences through storytime and un-plugged play – including a visit to the hands-on KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab at no charge.
