Event Details

Second in The Art of the Story series, our new storytelling event for kids: Paul Goble Illustrated Stories: Heroes, Saviors & Triumphs.

Kids of all ages will explore stories told through artworks in our newest Paul Goble exhibit: Heroes, Saviors and Triumphs: Illustrations by Paul Goble. This exhibition of Paul Goble illustrations features stories of triumph and the heroes—both mortal and supernatural—who save the day. Books featured include Adopted by the Eagles, Buffalo Woman, Crow Chief, Dream Wolf, Death of the Iron Horse, The Gift of the Sacred Dog, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, Horse Raid, The Legend of the White Buffalo Woman, The Lost Children, and The Return of the Buffaloes

During this 1-hour session, we'll guide participants through a process of discovery using Visual Thinking Strategies, showing kids they can uncover fascinating stories and details in Paul Goble's exquisite illustrations of Native American stories. Then we'll share a fun story-time featuring stories from one of Paul Goble's award winning books, available for sale in the Museum Store. 

This is a free event and as always, admission to the museum is free.

Ideal for ages 4 - 12 (but adults and kids of all ages are welcome)

All children must be accompanied by an adult.
