MY HERO will be at the Laguna Art Museum on Saturday, May 2, from 11 AM until 2 PM, to inspire children to create earth themed masks and wreaths to inspire stewardship of our planet and conservation of our precious natural resources. This project’s completed imaginative and ecologically wreaths and masks will be featured on MY HERO's freely accessible global website (www.myhero.com), to be shared with children and adults around the world. Admission to the Museum for the festival is free.
"The MY HERO Virtual Art Gallery is very excited to be collaborating with the Laguna Art Museum to create meaningful activities for their children's festival," said Victoria Murphy, Curator of the My Hero Art Gallery.
