Story Time: The Water Princess

March 2, 2018 | 11:30AM - 12:30PM

Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition Dining with Kings. Families and children of all ages are invited to discover Princess Gie Gie’s kingdom as she searches for clean drinking water in The Water Princess, by Susan Verde (2016). After the reading, a Museum Educator will lead families on a brief exploration of artworks related to the story.

Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators from 11:30am–12:30pm  on the first and third Friday of each month. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.

Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 398 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd | $12/day

About the Exhibition
Dining with Kings: Ceremony and Hospitality in the Cameroon Grassfields features royal vessels from the Fowler’s collection, and reveals the connections between food, culture, and power in the palaces of the Cameroon Grassfields. This intimate study of hospitality in the western area of Cameroon in the 19th and 20th centuries highlights the beadwork, textiles, embroideries, and carvings that embellish terra-cotta vessels, drinking gourds, small bowls, and drinking horns. The use of restricted iconography and prestige materials in the creation of such vessels speaks to their important role within palace culture and demonstrates the ways in which food is about much more than sustenance—it is about status, diplomacy, and hospitality.
