Join visiting artist and teacher Dr. Ronni Alexander from Hiroshima, Japan on October 20, 1:30 – 2:00pm to create a giant collaborative banner about peace, just like children have done all over Asia. Learn about Dr. Alexander’s inspiring art therapy work with Japanese children after the 2011 tsunami in Japan and see an exhibition of peace banners those children have made. Do it yourself as we create a peace banner from Pittsburgh, representing peace, hope and international friendship!
Since 2008, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh has worked with Dr. Alexander and Remembering Hiroshima Imagining Peace to increase understanding between people in Pittsburgh and Japan and to encourage a shared vision of a peaceful future through age-appropriate programs for families.
