The Great Lakes Children’s Museum is hosting an Arts in Action program Saturday, March 10th from 10:00am – 12:30pm. Arts in Action will feature Wood Smoke Jim and River Lark Mary of Twilight Walking Tours. Together, dressed in 1750’s period clothing, they will tell a series of stories based on the exhibits in the Great Lakes Children’s Museum! Listen to them tell sailing stories, stories of the Great Lakes and Michigan history, during this inside walking tour! In addition to their many different stories, enjoy multiple songs and dances promoting interactive play. The Arts in Action program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
