Join our Museum Curator of History on select Friday afternoons for Story Time live on Facebook followed by a short activity you can do at home. This week we will be remembering September 11 by reading two books for children based on the events of that day. The first is “The Little Chapel That Stood” by A.B. Curtiss, which tells of the historic chapel only yards away from the Twin Towers. The book is the story of fear being overcome by courage and teaches that no one is too small to make a difference. The second book is “Saved by the Boats” by Julie Gassman. The book relates what would become the largest sea evacuation in history. This rarely told story helps us to understand that even in our darkest hours, there are people who shine brightly. Tune in online!
Learn about various species that call Burlington County Parks home! Every other Wednesday, Naturalist Kate will post a new video on our Nature Programs Page that highlights a local species to better understand their behaviors, natural history and/or significance in the environment. This month will focus on monarch butterflies and eastern cottontails.
This exhibit, Causa sui (pronounced kau?. sa 's?. i) is a Latin term relating to a philosophical hypothesis denoting that something is self-generating or self-creating. Artist Jaquie Solimeo offers her take on abstract painting and what makes her love it so much. As imperfect humans, she thinks that we can feel so aware of that imperfection that the process of creation and expression like art can be tainted. When Jaquie sees art that she carefully planned, created and recreated, and toiled over, it seems ugly because what she really sees is this all-consuming battle against imperfection. Her experience with abstract art, however, is that it's almost as if it creates itself. There’s no plan, no expectation, no anxiety…and in the end when she looks at it, she finally sees art and beauty.
