What can one person do to help protect our environment? Children of all ages are invited to answer this question during a special interactive storytelling experience celebrating Isatou Ceesay’s recycling efforts in Njau, The Gambia, in honor of Earth Day on April 22. After reading One Plastic Bag: Isatou Ceesay and the Recycling Women of The Gambia by Miranda Paul, Fowler Educators will introduce visitors to El Anatsui’s metallic tapestry featuring upcycled everyday materials, such as bottle wrappers and tops.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler Educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of most months. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.

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.
