Curiosity Day

By Leigh Williams, Contributing Writer

Gavin Mowrer, age 1, of Mt. Vernon joined dozens of children Saturday afternoon to explore a variety of musical instruments at Curiosity Day at Cedarhurst. WSIU, the public media arm of Southern Illinois University, and Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, with support from sponsors SIU Credit Union and Modern Woodmen of America, organized what they describe as a “fun-filled family event.” Area families enjoyed photo opportunities with PBS KIDS costume characters Curious George and the Man With the Yellow Hat, outdoor painting, making and flying kites, music and sound sculptures in the Sculpture Garden, planting seeds, making Curious George masks, building with Citi Blocks, watching Curious George videos, reading Curious George and other PBS KIDS books and the children’s art exhibit Art Rocks!, located in the Mitchell Museum Family Center
