Stories and Crafts with the East Hampton Library
Recommended for children ages 3+
Join Guild Hall’s Anthony Madonna and storytellers from the East Hampton Library for a family hour of stories, gallery tours, and art workshops. At each session we will be reading a children’s book in response to the current exhibitions, Enoc Perez: Paradise and Karin Waisman: The Horizon is not a Straight Line, followed by a hands-on workshop.
This week’s story is Marvelous Cornelius: Hurricane Katrina and The Spirit of New Orleans, Philip Bildner followed by repurposed assemblage inspired by Enoc Perez.
Sessions are held in-person at Guild Hall both indoors and outdoors, with gallery tours occur in the Museum and the adjoining workshop in the Minikes Garden. Masks are required at all times.
Space is extremely limited to a maximum of 15 participants. When registering, please be sure to register both adults and children.
As an interdisciplinary collaborative artist, educator, and administrator, Anthony strives to construct experiences that both critically challenge our individual beliefs and bring awareness to our responsibility as a community.
This ambition has led him to work in various roles and context: a workshop-leader of original music and theatre pieces amongst diverse age groups and learning developments, a music practitioner within elderly communities, a concert and festival producer, a composer/performer of experimental vocal works, and a collaborative installation artist. Anthony has worked within institutions such as The McCarter Theatre Center, The Juilliard School, and the Barbican Centre. His projects have been showed and/or performed as part of the Tate Modern: Tate Exchange (London), the Barbican Centre’s Dialogue, UnFinished, and Curious festivals (London), Guild Hall of East Hampton (Long Island, NY), Duck Creek Arts Center (Long Island, NY), and other community focused centers.
Anthony currently serves as the Patti Kenner Senior Associate for Learning and Public Engagement at Guild Hall of East Hampton. The role aims to support the next generation of artists, theater makers and creative professionals through the development and creation of high quality, inventive and pioneering educational offerings.
Anthony is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (M.M. Music Leadership), The Juilliard School’s Professional Apprenticeship Program, and Westminster Choir College (B.M. Music Education & Vocal Performance). Tutors, Mentors, and Coaches include Zehava Gal, J.J. Penna, Dr. Amanda Quist, Kirstin Ek, Natasha Zielazinski, Sigrun Saevarsdottir-Griffiths, Nell Catchpole, and Dinah Stabb.
