Event Description

In conjunction with the Free Library’s “One Book, One Philadelphia” program, we are celebrating Drawn Together written by Minh Lê and illustrated by Dan Santat. In this beautiful children’s book a shared love of art and storytelling overcomes communication barriers between a young boy and his grandfather. Like them, we will imagine a fantastical world and create a self-image to inhabit it. Instead of paint brushes and colored markers, we will use a black-and-white printer, bits of cloth, and a variety of templates — from antelope horns to mermaid tails – to construct our new selves.         

Learn about the self-portraits of PMG creator Isaiah Zagar during our family-friendly tours at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 PM.

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between noon and 4:00 p.m. Reservations are not required for PECO Family Jams. Crafts and basement tours are included with regular admission. Purchase your tickets in advance.
