12:00 pm

Satisfy your curiosity at a family day celebrating our first ever Kidspace at the Clark exhibition. Lions and Tigers and Museums, Oh My! will entertain visitors of all ages with live performances, activities, art projects, and more.

Be sure to visit the first uCurate exhibition at The Clark, also opening on November 17: Giselle's Remix. See a fascinating collection of art through the eyes of eleven-year-old curator Giselle Ciulla, who worked with the Clark's curatorial team to make her vision a reality.

The day’s activities include:

  • Family-oriented art-making projects, including lion-faced pillows, safari magnets, hidden animal collages, jungle tattoos, and games and puzzles. (Noon–4 pm) 
  • All About Big Cats!, an educational presentation by Teralyn LaChance, assistant education director of The Zoo in Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. (12:30 and 2:30 pm)
  • Lion Tales, an audience participation performance by “Tales ’n Tunes,” a musical storytelling duo. The show combines folk music and story-telling. (1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm)
  • Stories and information on the ancient sport of falconry presented by expert Chris Davis. (1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:30 pm)
  • The Mystery of Cougars in New England, a talk by Robert Tougias, wildlife author and member of the Cougar Rewilding Foundation. (1:30 and 3:30 pm)
