Poet Scott Raven and artist Josefina Hernandez join forces to tell multi-level, interactive “Storied Stories” with words and pictures. Together they look through windows, open doors, and climb the rooftops of our imaginations to bring heARTfelt tales of family fun and adventure. With wit, humor and wonder, these carefully woven tales will bring the Museum’s exhibits to life.
