Fun family activities at the Mazza Museum with Funday Sunday

By Claudia Annoni, La Prensa


Findlay: The Mazza Museum has the distinction of being the first and largest teaching museum in the world, specializing in the original artwork from picture books. Its mission is to promote literacy through its educational programs and to collect, exhibit and preserve original art from children’s books.


Goals of the museum include: encouraging visitors to view the best works of art available in the field of children’s book illustration, provide exemplary guided tours, present educational opportunities to both children and adults, serve as a center for study of the art of children’s books, work cooperatively with public and private schools, develop creative educational programs, offer museum-quality storage to archive original materials, and provide gallery space to exhibit original works along with corresponding books and teaching tools.


Some of the Mazza Museum’s programs include: public presentations by noted illustrators and authors of children’s picture books, family-focused events such as Storytelling Under the Stars and Funday Sunday, Mazza Museum School Extension Program (schools participate in seven counties), school tours and programs (busloads of children visit from the tri-state area), docent-led tours for adults and children, national traveling exhibits, young authors and artists conferences


Last Funday Sunday’s theme was “Dinosaurs.” Staff and volunteers from the museum prepared several stations of activities for children and their families to learn about dinosaurs and explore their creativity and imagination through digging for dino-candy fossils, decoration, dancing, and more. Over 550 people attended the event.  


One of the stations, coordinated by Andreanna Rivera-Pérez, presented “Dinos of Latin America,” offering instruction about the location where fossils were found, prehistoric sites, Latino culture related activities and bilingual storytelling.


Next Funday Sunday is schedule for April 3, 2011, from 1:30PM to 3:00 PM. The theme is “The Wild West.” Admission is gratis.


The Mazza Museum is located at 1000 North Main St. Findlay, OH. For more information call 1-800-472-9502 or 419-422-8313 or visit www.mazzamuseum.org
