Kidsville at the Parthenon
Kidsville at the Parthenon Celebrates The Mars Molecule Project and Valentine’s Day in January and February; Program Expands to Weekly Events at the Parthenon Beginning in March
January 5, 2015 (Nashville, TN) – Kidsville at the Parthenon, a program of The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park, will kick off the new year with two free events in January and February. In March, the popular children’s educational series will expand its programming, moving from monthly to weekly in the Parthenon.
“Kidsville at the Parthenon has been a phenomenal success,” said Conservancy President Sylvia Rapoport. “It is fabulous to see families from across Nashville coming together in our city’s most iconic landmark to learn through storytelling and crafts.”
On January 9, Kidsville at the Parthenon will celebrate Centennial Park’s new art installation "The Mars Molecule Project” with a reading and learning workshop. Storytime will feature "The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg," one of Aesop's famous Greek Fables. Participants will also explore mathematical concepts related to the Parthenon and the Mars Molecule exhibit while creating their own designs.
On February 13, the exploration of fairy tales and fables will continue through the art of Katherine Ace, whose exhibit will be featured in the Parthenon’s East Gallery. Children will experience a Valentine’s Day story and create their own fairy tale-themed Valentine’s Day cards.
Kidsville at the Parthenon currently takes place on the second Saturday of the month from 11 – 11:45 AM. The program will expand to weekly on March 5. Parthenon admission is free for Kidsville attendees.
