Save and Misbehave: Kid’s Edition!

Exposing children to art is one of the most important things a parent or teacher can do to help them grow creatively and learn to think outside the box.  Just imagine overcoming stage fright at a tender young age!  You’d save that child years of naked-on-the-stage nightmares and therapy bills.  The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Colburn School are of the same school of thought and tomorrow afternoon (2-5pm) you can catch the final event in their Summer Encounter 2009 – a free children’s concert and art exhibit.

Approximately 60 students have participated in the two-week long program exploring the artistic and cultural resources available in downtown LA.  Tomorrow afternoon will be their “gallery show” and final concert, so to speak, displaying all they’ve learned about the performing arts.  Their artwork was inspired by works on view at MOCA and they’ll be performing at the Herbert Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School in Downtown.  While little Timmy would probably also be inspired by a concert of Beethoven at Disney Hall, I have a feeling that watching his contemporaries explore the joys of art and music will make him think, “well, maybe I could do that!”

The Summer Encounter 2009: Children’s Concert and Art Exhibitionwill be held tomorrow afternoon from 2-5pm at the Herbert Zipper Concert Hallat the Colburn School.  For more information, pleaseclick hereor call (213) 621-2200.  No reservations are required.
