Day of Compassion

Day of Compassion

Commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with performances and activities focused on treating people with compassion. Enjoy the interactive play Go Home Tiny Monster presented by Puppet Showplace Theater at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Follow Sylvie and her family of creatures as they search for a new home after being displaced in a show filled with comedy and live music. Performers communicate exclusively with body language to eliminate communication barriers. Sensory support guides are available at the admissions desk by request and here.
 
Meet members of Alfred University’s Art Force Five, a group that travels the country paying tribute to legendary icons such as Harlem Renaissance leaders, suffragists, and more. See the group’s display of their first six (of 19) mosaic portraits celebrating women’s empowerment and paint a tile to add to their art collection. Explore your feelings with the book Glad Monster, Sad Monster by Ed Emberly and Anne Miranda, and create a monster mask just like the book. Be inspired by students from the Carlson YMCA before and after school program as they perform Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
11 a.m.–4 p.m.
