MASS MoCA Hosts Three Art Assemblies for Students

Art Assemblies for Students
at MASS MoCA in North Adams

MASS MoCA will host three art assembly performances with two performances of each: Roy Nathanson on Thursday, Dec 13, 2012, LAVA on Friday, Feb 15, 2013, and Radio Jarocho on Thursday, Jun 6, 2013. Performances are at 9:30am and 12:30pm.

Mass MoCA in North Adams, home to galleries full of unique and interesting contemporary artwork, is offering a series of Art Assemblies for students!  The performances, which will take place once each between December and June, feature a wide variety of music, dance, and storytelling and are meant to expose students to new forms of artistic expression.

Performances include: Radio Jarocho’s Mexican folk music; a jazz and spoken word hybrid by Roy Nathanson and his band Sotto Voce; and Lava, a troupe combining dance, theater, and acrobatics to present social commentary and and explore relationships. Download the Art Assemblies brochure for days, times and costs.

Shows are open to school and home-school groups, or individuals, and are designed for a pre-K through 3rd grade audience.  Pre-registration is suggested, as space is limited and the performances tend to be popular!  Attending one (or all!) of the events can help teach young students about the may different forms of artistic expression that exist.  For more information, call the museum at 413-662-2111 or visit www.massmoca.org.
