Compassion is an essential ingredient in any community. The Strong is highlighting this value on Martin Luther King Day, with a long afternoon of inclusive programming for kids and families. In addition to taking in the current and ongoing museum exhibits, visitors can catch a sensory-friendly performance of interactive puppet show "Go Home Tiny Monster" at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m., or help members of Alfred University's Art Force Five by painting a tile to add to one of their large mosaic works. There will also be a mask-making activity based on "Glad Monster, Sad Monster" by Ed Emberly and Anne Miranda.
