Our Trip To Panama!

 

Although our trip wasn't literally to Panama, we visited with Panama's culture here in our own library. This Past Saturday, November 17th, our good friend Nidya Pitti Granadino hosted a special Panamanian Children Traveling Art Expo. She brought art from the children of Panama and also showed different artifacts from her home country. We want to Thank Ms. Granadino for sharing her wonderful culture with us here at the Northwest Branch. If you missed it this year, check our Events Calendar for more of these great events. Happy Holidays!

 

Art From Panama

The Panamanian children's art exhibit is currently on display.  If you have time, stop by the book drop windows and take a moment to look at the colorful landscapes, still life, portraits, and other artistic works.  Don't forget, on November 17th at 2:00 pm, we will have a very special guest here to discuss Panamanian culture.  There will also be coloring pages and other activities available at the end of the program.  See you there!

Discover Panama

Did you notice how quickly the display case changed?  During October and November we are spotlighting Panama.  On November 17th at 2:00 pm, we will have a special guest here to discuss the life and cultural traditions of the Panamanian peoples.  If you don't know much about Panama then I invite you to come and discover what the beautiful South American county has to offer.  Also, be on the lookout for a Panamanian children's art exhibit which will be featured on the book drop windows.

Viva Panama!

Nidya Granadino and the Panamanian Children's Art Exhibit

The Northwest Library was contacted by Ms. Nidya Granadino. She lives in Houston, but teaches art to the children of her hometown Province of Chiriqui in Panama. Nidya shared wonderful artwork from Panamanian sixth graders with us. These colorful renditions of the Panama Canal, landscapes, still life drawings and depictions of every day life in Panama are sure to please, educate and inspire the children of Cypress, Texas. Come on it to see this wonderful exhibit and leave a comment in the exhibit comment book. The child artists will be able to read what you have written.
