Blog: Month: January 2020

January artist Rebecca Flores-Mantilla

“Simple Pleasures” is an exhibition of works that delve into snapshots of life. These paintings showcase ordinary things
and places and highlight how they can affect our mood and memories. The average and mundane are elevated in
importance so that we may see how intertwined we are to everything around us.

Rebecca’s exhibit will be on display the month of January.

Malden Reads Kickoff at the Library—Family Movie & Art Tour

Join us next Saturday, January 11, 2020  for the beginning of the day/night kickoff events celebrating Malden Reads 10th anniversary.

The day will begin here at the library with a 2 pm family movie, Abominable, showing in the Maccario. The event is free and open to all.

For the adults, at 2:30 pm, there will be a tour of the historic Converse Building and Art Galleries. Space is limited. Please call 781-324-0218 to reserve a spot.

Later in the evening, at the Markey Senior Center from 6-8 pm, the kickoff will continue with  live music, food samplings, community exhibit tables, readings and relevant presentations, and special activities such as the featured Traveling Poetry Emporium.

True Story Theater, an improvisational group will hold a special ticketed event with limited seating, will be held in the auditorium of the John & Christina Markey Senior Community Center. With very little prep time, and a few props, the actors of True Story Theater take stories from the audience around a common theme and act them out. The $10 tickets are limited so please purchase through Eventbrite.
