Parenting: An Art without a Manual Exhibit

About the Exhibition
Our original mega-art exhibition will bring together historic, l’dor v’dor, traditional and transcultural wisdom right beside the latest scientific insights brought forth from expert brain and behavioral research. Even trans-species parenting — exploring hardwiring and actual practice of parenting and nurture evidenced from the animal domain will be included — as will the important role of grandparents, mentors, foster and adoptive parents, enlightened protective service providers, and teachers. Here, futurists weigh in to document the swiftly changing influences on parenting and the projected trajectory of those changes on families of today and tomorrow. Examining through art, humor, historic text, and first-hand testimony, the good, the bad, the horrific, and the sublime of parenting possibilities, our goal is nothing less than to inspire well-informed parenting best practice, honest dialogue, child and parent reconciliation, and a better way forward.

Exhibit runs thru September 9, 2019
