Step Into the Barefoot Books Story with 30 Artists from Around the World!
September 9-25, 2022
The Umbrella Arts Center is thrilled to partner with Concord-based Barefoot Books as the award-winning, global multicultural children's publisher celebrates its 30th anniversary year!
On view over two floors of The Umbrella Art Gallery, Barefoot Books: 30 Years, 30 Artists is a free family-friendly, interactive art exhibition showcasing 30 artists from around the world and a three-dimensional timeline of Barefoot’s history. Limited edition prints of this brilliant artwork will be available for sale, with proceeds benefitting The Umbrella, but no purchase is necessary and the exhibition is free and open to the public.
An enriching series of related events include free family art activities, a storywalk, author talks, and three live stage performances of Barefoot's award-winning story, The Boy Who Grew Flowers, a heartwarming story about empathy and kindness by Manhattan-based dance and theater company, The Treehouse Shakers. Performances are September 22-24 in The Umbrella Main Stage Theater 144. Tickets are on sale now, with proceeds going to support the nonprofit Umbrella Arts Center.
