Wonderstruck Shadow Boxes

The art of collecting

On Wednesday, May 20, at 4 p.m., join us as we talk about the art of collecting and make our own shadow boxes.

This program is in honor of Brian Selznick's book Wonderstruck, where they see a "cabinet of wonder" in a museum. Participants will learn the basics of how to preserve their own wondrous objects and then use materials to make their own cabinet of wonder.

The library will provide materials for the shadow boxes as well as some objects to put inside but participants are encouraged to bring their own collections (buttons, coins, pictures etc) to display in their box.

This program is for children ages 6 and older.
