(Friday, Aug. 21, 3:30 p.m.) Online Family Program: Shel Silverstein’s Playful Poetry

Shel Silverstein is most famous for writing and illustrating children’s books, but did you know he also wrote songs that were recorded by many outlaw country musicians? Join a museum educator on Zoom to explore the exhibit Outlaws and Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s and listen to poems from Silverstein’s collection A Light in the Attic. Inspired by his whimsical writing, draw an illustration along with visual artist Britt McDermott and learn to write a poem in Silverstein’s style. Recommended for ages four to eleven, but all are welcome. Guardian is required to be present for children under thirteen.
