FIRST SUNDAYS AT RAM WITH KAREN RAE KRAUT
March 3, 2019 –
On Sunday, March 3, from 2-2:30 p.m., join us for a delightful performance by Karen Rae Kraut. This event will be held at Riverside Art Museum downtown, located at 3425 Mission Inn Avenue.
On the 32nd anniversary of the creation of Women’s History Month, Karen Rae Kraut shares folk tales centering on brave women who match wits with powerful adversaries. We’ll also learn why it’s so difficult to keep a secret! Audience members will have the opportunity to provide musical accompaniment on a dizzying array of rhythm instruments.
"What distinguishes a truly 'creative' teller is her ability to create something so deliciously new and unique with words and art so traditionally and classically celebrated. I was mesmerized; and your playful ways of getting us involved as only you can do added such wonderful balance to such a mysterious and profound tale." —Jim Cogan, Tellabration
"I was struck by the transformative power of this kind of program. Especially pronounced was the change on the look of the faces of the adults who, for a while, stepped into another world and lightened and filled their spirits."
—Karen Delshad, Fairview Branch Library, Santa Monica
