Newport Art Museum to Present "Free to Bee" at Art After Dark
An enchanting garden is a feast for the senses - showy greenery, glorious flowers, intricate vines, bountiful fruit, delicate mosses, elegant grasses, and majestic trees - stunning, vibrant, and healthy thanks to its diversity. Cross-pollination ensures this abundance continues to evolve and thrive. Newport Art Museum is honoring Mother Nature's potent lesson at a festive, family-friendly, garden-themed celebration of diversity, inclusion, and self-acceptance, and a world where people are Free to Bee.
The evening will highlight Newport Art Museum current exhibition, Avant Gardens, with Storytime with Drag Kings, Queens, and Friends, featuring Avant Gardens exhibiting artist Caleb Cole (aka Claude Kitten) and performers Poise'n Envy (Miss Gay Worcester 2018) and Alli ShortforAllister, who will share award-winning children's books and stories focused on diversity and LGBTQIA+ themes. Storytime with Drag Kings, Queens, and Friends seeks to help children develop empathy, learn about gender diversity and difference, and encourage self-expression and tolerance.
Art After Dark is from 5 - 8 pm. Craft projects will be ongoing all evening, and story times will be at 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm. Admission to Art After Dark is free for Members, and a suggested $10 donation for non-Members. Festive dress is encouraged. This event is appropriate for families with children ages 6+. Cash bar and light refreshments will be available.
