Artwork from the Cleveland Art Museum will be available for viewing at the Main Library of the Tuscarawas County Public Library System on Wednesday, October 25th at 6:30 p.m.
“This is an exciting opportunity to experience the Cleveland Art Museum at the County Library,” said Public Service Associate Laura Hanna. “Participants will learn about the development of language, culture, and history through the art of the alphabet.”
Hanna said the hands-on exhibit will allow participants to view and touch amazing works of art that are up to 4,000 years old.
“Museum staff and trained volunteers will bring genuine art objects from the museum’s vast collection,” said Hanna. “The collection is sure to engage all ages as they explore the art of writing from hieroglyphic drawings to modern time.”
Guided by museum staff and volunteers, participants will be able to handle actual art objects while engaging in lively discussion about diverse cultures, time periods, materials, and techniques. Works of art will be comprised of varied media including ceramics, textiles, prints, carved wood and stone, and cast metal.
Space is limited to 25 participants and registration is required. To register, visit our online event calendar or for more information call 330-364-4474 ext. 101. The Main Library is located at 121 Fair Ave. NW in New Philadelphia.
