Teen Homeschool Workshop: Dec Arts Design Challenge

Friday, March 24, 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Designers throughout history occupied two worlds: the visual world of the artist, and the mechanical world of an engineer. Explore our decorative arts collection and the design process behind works of art we live with and use every day. Then join forces with your fellow students for a design challenge inspired by works in the galleries. Ages 13-19; all materials provided, and no prior experience necessary.


Adam Haslett

Friday, March 24, 7:30 p.m.

Imagine Me Gone, Adam Haslett’s latest novel, is a fiercely intimate story of a family facing the ultimate question: how far will we go to save the people we love the most? A 2016 Kirkus Prize finalist and National Book Award Longlist selection, Imagine Me Gone examines the impact of mental illness on a family, as told from the perspective of five different intricately rendered characters. Haslett is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and Yale Law School, and recipient of the Berlin Prize. His short story collection You Are Not a Stranger Here was a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist.
