First Sundays for 2016/2017 Season

November 6, 2016 - Make your own Comic

Ever wonder what it takes to make a good comic book? Come learn from a pro! We’ll be led by illustrator and sequential artist, Bernyce Talley who will demonstrate the art of creating comics. Explore the exhibit, Rising Above: Entertainment and the Struggle for African American Identity to learn about the stereotypes that have been used in comics throughout the years.

 December 4, 2016 - Elephant Stampede! 

Did you know there was once an elephant stampede down the street where the Museum sits? Scared by a nearby explosion, several elephants from a traveling circus ran through downtown Riverside in 1908. We’ll learn about this event and have some circus fun, learn how to juggle, make your own balloon animals and watch a cirque performance by Encore School for the Performing Arts.
