Easthampton City Arts+ and the Easthampton Bear Fest invites you to an original storybook reading and a puppet show on July 14th at the Easthampton Congregational Church. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. during Art Walk Easthampton.
Members of ECA+ bring you a bear friendly puppet show about Goldilocks—a girl who runs an errand for her mother and her inquisitive nature gets the best of her when she finds a little house in the clearing. See this celebrated tale animated with plush puppets.
Following the puppet show, artist Kevin Maloney will read from a life-size storybook about the bear Zenya, also known as Artist Bear. Zenya the bear sculpture is the creation of Bear Fest artist Juli Kirk and is on view at Eastworks through the duration of Bear Fest. Maloney, followed Kirk’s bear on journeys after the Kirk completed the bear. He will read from his colorful life-size book that includes Zenya’s excursions documented with photographs.
