Mass MoCA celebrates the work of artists Shaun Leonardo and Bruno Miguel at the free opening of Kidspace’s new exhibition, Defining Moments.

Make some art of your own and enjoy a bite to eat. Join in later in the day for a performance by Cirque Kalabanté, which combines breathtaking acrobatics with live music at 4 p.m.

Defining Moments explores how memories are formed, recalled and seen. Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Shaun Leonardo and Brazilian pop artist Bruno Miguel share their individual and cultural memories, expressed in a range of mediums from paintings and wall drawings, to mixed media sculpture and collages. Their work delves into the mythic aspects of generational storytelling, the formative role of nostalgia, and the fallibility of collective memory.

Kidspace is a child-centered art gallery and hands-on studio (ArtBar) presenting exhibitions and educational experiences in collaboration with leading artists. Wendy Red Star’s exhibition continues a 20-year tradition of the program to focus on contemporary social issues and expand notions of art and art materials. Admission to Kidspace is always free; the ArtBar is open on weekends and during school breaks.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
