Story Time: Wangari’s Trees of Peace: A True Story from Africa
Celebrate Arbor Day at the Fowler Museum! Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives. Children of all ages are invited to discover the true story of Wangari Maathai, Kenyan environmentalist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, in Wangari’s Trees of Peace: A True Story from Africa (2008). After the reading, a Museum Educator will lead families on a brief exploration of artworks related to the story.
National Arbor Day is Friday, April 27.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of each month. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.
Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 398 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd | $12/day
About the Exhibition
Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives explores the roles that art plays in creating meaning and defining purpose for people across the globe. Art is not only a reflection of culture but can actively shape thought and experience. The objects on display have all intervened in the lives of those who made or used them—whether to educate, solve problems, assert leadership, assist in remembering, or provision loved ones in the afterlife.
