Spring Family Fair 2013. Photography by Joshua Winata.
Spring Family Fair
The exhibition The Little Prince: A New York Story is an opportunity to dedicate our Spring Family Fair to the beloved character, whose tale was written and illustrated in New York City by French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Activities include watching an animated short film (The Little Prince/Will Vinton), composing a large mural made of planets, and trying on fun costumes. The Ben Jam troupe will bring to life the little prince, the fox, and the rose and invite families to follow the mysterious little boy in his magical journey through outer space and planet Earth. Appropriate for ages 6-12.
The Ben Jam Presents: The New Adventures of The Little Prince
Would you go on a journey with the Little Prince? Would you travel to new places with him and meet new faces? Or would you rather choose your own adventure? What ever the case may be, the Ben Jam troupe invites you to meet a little prince, a fox, a snake, a pilot, a rose, and a few odd grown-ups, and make yourself part of a whole new wondrous story.
Craft a Cosmos
With glitter, rhinestones, feathers, pom-poms, tulle, and more trimmings galore, educator Lisa Libicki will lead children in the creation of planets, asteroids and stars to display on a mural. Join us for a unique cosmic experience.
The Rose, the Little Prince, and the Fox: these are the latest additions to our ever growing collection of beautiful historical and literary costumes, designed and handmade by artist and educator Pam Koehler. For the time of the photoshoot you will become a famous character in a book!
2:15 & 3:15 p.m.
The Little Prince (A Claymation Movie)
In this captivating 30-minute claymation movie by Will Vinton, we follow the eternally young prince through a fantasy universe as he seeks "matters of consequences". The production remains faithful to the spirit of innocence and sense of wonderment that mark Saint-Exupéry's book. (billy budd films)
