Fifth Grader ToursOngoing
Fuller Craft Museum is pleased to announce the creation of a new community education program funded by The Koretz Family Art Education Fund. This fund is made possible with start‐up funding from Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth R. Feinberg. The program allows every fifth grader in Brockton Public Schools an opportunity to participate in a free Museum Educator‐led tour, followed by an in‐classroom, hands‐on craft activity at their school.
Attorney Kenneth Feinberg established the fund in 2011 in honor of his lifelong friend, Barry Koretz who attended the Brockton Public Schools, became a well‐respected architect, and helped redesign the Brockton skyline. The fund will expand Fuller Craft’s capacity to build on and strengthen its commitment to community art education. Providing opportunities to experience contemporary craft within the galleries of the Museum and out in the community is central to Fuller Craft’s mission.
“Craft teaches all of us how to be makers and creators—not just consumers,” says Director, Jonathan Fairbanks. “To shape or mold raw material into works of art takes patience, discipline, and ingenuity—in return craft molds us, our young people, and our culture. Thanks to the generosity of the Feinbergs, we can share these important lessons with Brockton youth.”
