Storytime at the Museum

Storytime at the Museum

Children ages four to seven are invited to hear a story in the galleries. On February 18 we will hear Buddhist Jataka tales, stories that tell of previous lives of the Buddha, in human or animal form, that are fun and wise. This is in conjunction with Protecting Wisdom: Tibetan Book Covers from the MacLean Collection and stories of the Buddha. 
Stories will be followed by a short activity responding to the art on display. Parents must accompany children. Siblings are welcome to join the group. Meet in front of the UMMA Store.

Storytime is generously supported by the University of Michigan Credit Union Arts Adventures Program, UMMA's Lead Sponsor for Student and Family Engagement. 

Lead support for Protecting Wisdom: Tibetan Book Covers from the MacLean Collection is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Michigan Medicine, and the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Center for the Education of Women's Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund and the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures.
