Explore an immersive group exhibition of works inspired by the American children’s book classic, Goodnight Moon, written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd, first published in 1947. Through contemporary reimaginings of various objects found within the book’s bedroom setting, Goodnight House explores how the (slightly subversive) book has been woven into a collective, American cultural understanding of comfort, sleep, compassion, and imagination.

Presented by Fort Makers,  a New York-based design studio and artist collective that designs bold, colorful, and tactile objects and environments through the lens of American craft.

Free online advance appointments required. No walk-ins 0r waitlist, but check online for cancellations.
