Family Festival: Young Storytellers

Saturday, July 27, 2019
10am – 1pm
On the High Line at the Spur at 30th Street and 10th Avenue

Everyone has a story to tell—histories, fantasies, and curiosities. Learn how to tell yours loudly, boldly, and creatively.  Young artists, families, and caregivers are invited to make monumental stories inspired by artist Simone Leigh’s Brick House, the first monumental work of art on the new High Line Plinth.

Presented in partnership with the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling, join us for artist-led drop-in workshops to explore the many dynamic ways to share your story with the public.


Located in the legendary Sugar Hill historic district, home to the Harlem Renaissance, the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling provides our culturally rich neighborhood with a space where children and their families grow and learn about Sugar Hill and the world at large through intergenerational dialogue with artists, art, and storytelling.

Designed to nurture the curiosity and creative spirit of three- to eight-year-old children, Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling provides opportunities to grow as both author and audience, as children engage with the work of accomplished artists and storytellers, and create and share their own stories.
