Brooklyn Children’s Museum

Experience poetry, interactive sculptures and festive banners at the Everett Children’s Library at Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Featuring two interactive sculptures, “A Tree Lives” and “The Bird of Imagining,” Art Inspires Art helps children explore poetry and art, while learning how one art form can inspire another.

Art Inspires Art features works developed by artists from The Touchstone Center for Children. Celebrating 45 years in art education, The Touchstone Center was founded by poet and educator, Richard Lewis, and has resulted in numerous publications. These publications have gone on to inspire visual and theatrical arts education experiences in New York City schools.
