To celebrate Yayoi Kusama's wildly
To celebrate Yayoi Kusama’s wildly popular infinity room exhibit of spotted pumpkins at the Dallas Museum of Art, recently extended until April 29th, Lanie DeLay (Dallas Contemporary, Dallas Public Library…) will read the charming and wacky ode to exhibits A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Museum by French author and illustrator duo Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud.
After that, we will read kids’ book Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity, and if time allows, the dotty Put Me In the Zoo by Robert Lopshire.
Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
It’ll be a 45 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Saturday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
