As memorable as childhood itself are the stories we read—and which are read to us—in those formative years; tales that serve to comfort, inspire, and make us feel safe. In these moments parents, too, find a sense of security and promise. The 40+ artists of WE ART BOSTON honor the role of story time with a fundraiser of original art from some of the most beloved children’s book illustrators. Proceeds benefit the Emergency and Trauma Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital, providing physical and emotional care to families following sudden events. Join us on October 20th at the Rose Kennedy Greenway for a viewing of the artwork and family fun. Activities include watercolor, bookmaking, book signings & musical performances. Bring your favorite stuffed animal to have his/her portrait drawn by a professional artist. Rain date Oct 27. Online Auction starts Oct 10.
