Museum ABCs: Goats in the Museum!?!

There are a lot of farm animals roaming the Bennington Museum in different works of art.

Are the goats in a painting? In a photograph? Or even on a wall? They might be Billy Goats Gruff! We will find them, listen to  stories about them, and make a goat friend to take home to add to your animal collections. (Image: Altered image of Jill Van Orden, Goat, paper maché and wood.)

The Museum ABCs program is a collaboration between Bennington Museum and the Bennington Free Library. The program is intended for children ages 3 to 5 (siblings welcome) and their adult companions and supports early literacy and a lifelong love of museums and learning.
