The MAT Art Education Department’s Liberty Partnership Program (LPP) presents “Other Side of the Moon,” an exhibition of puppets that bring to life imaginative ideas about creatures that might live on the dark side of the moon. The LPP is designed for students in grades 6 through 12, offering college-based summer and Saturday programs, as well as school-based after-school programs, elective classes and workshops. The goal is to develop students’ ability to create a positive future by increasing their motivation and ability to complete high school and seek entry into post-secondary education and meaningful employment. “Other Side of the Moon” will be on display in the Westside Gallery, 141 West 21st Street, December 3 – 15; there will be an opening reception on Saturday, December 3, 12 – 2pm.
