Monument Maker Family Event at the Concord Museum
December 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Know what you love. Make what you love. Join artist Shawn Fields and me as we celebrate the debut of our new children’s book biography about one of America’s most famous and most unheard-of sculptors. We tell the story of Concord local boy, Daniel Chester French who finds a passion and talent for working with his hands and shaping clay. This love only grows over the years and culminates in his largest artistic endeavor – The Lincoln Memorial.
This family-oriented talk will include discussions with the audience, close-looking activities, and at the end of the program, participants will sculpt their own masterpiece of what they love to bring home. Appropriate for all ages. Advanced Registration required.
