Hilltown Families


What will the Pioneer Valley look like 1,000 years from now? Artist Jonathon Keats and Amherst College’s Mead Art Museum are committed to finding out – with a Millennium camera, and an exhibit on the process of deep time photography. A 1,000 year community project that integrates art, citizen scientist, climate change, culture and history.

Families can use their minds as butterfly catchers in insect nets when visiting the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art this spring and summer, as the galleries will be filled with Carle’s images of crawling creatures of all shapes and sizes! Hands-on art making opportunities enhance the bug-art themed, allowing families to exercise their entomological creativity just as Carle has.

MASS MoCA’s “It’s Only Human” Kidspace exhibit and activity program is a fantastic achievement that stimulates all kind of curiosity, inviting discussion on topics such as body image and the complexities of anatomy, health, and wellness. Two artists offer differing perspectives of the human body through captivating lenses. This exhibit is for the whole family! Don’t miss the opening reception for on Saturday, June 14. Bring the kids and take a look at the works on display, have an open-ended family discussion about the exhibition (Not sure how to start? Try using questions we’ve provided!).
