Sculpting Black History

A picture of an African-American man with both hands raised, in front of some art. Join us for a special Black History Month program for ages 6 and up. 

We'll learn about African-American sculptors such as Tyree Guyton, the Detroit artist who turned his Heidelberg Street neighborhood into a gigantic art piece, using found materials that other people considered to be junk.

After our stories, such as Magic Trash, we'll work to create a found materials sculpture of our own in his honor.

The program will take place on February 8, at 4 p.m. in the Northeast Library upstairs.
