PMA Family Day: Sculpture and Nature

PMA Family Day: Sculpture and Nature

Ever want to come to the museum, but it’s so nice out that you wish you could combine the museum experience with the sunny weather? We understand, and that’s why we’ve invited naturalists from Maine Audubon to join us outside in our brand-new David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park for this special summer Family Day. Break out the sunscreen and relax outdoors, in nature and among our sculpture, while learning how to plant a butterfly-friendly garden that offers safe places for laying eggs and native plants full of nectar. The butterfly fun continues when popular children’s author Melissa Kim (A Snowy Owl Story) shares her new book, A Monarch Butterfly Story. And everyone gets to create a work of art and take it home with workshops facilitated by local artists. It’s the perfect way to add art to your summer itinerary, and we can’t wait to see you there.

About the Author
Author Melissa Kim is the author of the Wildlife on the Move series of board books, published by Islandport Press in partnership with Maine Audubon, as well as 10 children’s books and one adult guidebook.
