Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling

The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum reopens with two major art exhibitions mounted by its artists-in-residence, Lina Puerta, Damian Davis, Derek Fordjour, Leslie Jimenez, and David Shrobe.

But No Elephants! is named after a classic children’s book that deeply impressed co-curator Damien Davis as a child with its lesson of radical inclusiveness and vision of open-hearted community. With this as a jumping-off point, the exhibit examines how we attempt to fit together as a society and the complexities of our interactions with the world at large.

Puerta’s solo exhibition, La Huerta y Yo/The Garden and I, centers around Indigenous relationships with the natural world and what they can teach us about alternative ways of living.

Ticketed public programming on the opening day includes Art Making at 10am and 2pm—in which artists and children collaborate in creative investigations, and Stories on the Stoop at 11am, 1pm, and 2 pm—an intergenerational storytelling series to take place on the Sugar Hill plaza.
