Everyone longs to be loved. And the greatest thing we can do is let people know that they are loved and capable of loving. —Fred Rogers
About the Exhibit
Share, listen, connect, ask and learn about feelings and emotions at XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness, opening Sunday, September 17 at Mayborn Museum.
The Mayborn Museum is excited to bring a new type of exhibit to Central Texas! Through a variety of activities, the exhibit XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness offers families the opportunity to understand, appreciate and express emotions. This exhibit is a fun and interactive way to help kids consider what makes them sad, mad or happy. This will be a space that fosters conversations and experiences that bring love and forgiveness to the forefront of families’ minds. The Mayborn is excited to encourage children (and their caregivers) to take a deep breath and explore these powerful feelings and the effects they have on you and on others. At XOXO visitors can:
- Work together to balance on a seesaw or connect an infinite story puzzle.
- Build and explore a variety of facial expressions using empathy blocks.
- Release the negative by drawing or writing down what makes you angry or sad and then crank it through a paper shredder.
XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness was created in 2014 by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, with support from The Fetzer Institute.
