About The Event
This 'Alice in Wonderland' Exhibition Takes Visitors Down The Rabbit Hole
Do you remember reading Alice in Wonderland when you were young? Or perhaps you know it as the Disney remake with a wide-eyed Alice in her sky blue dress.
Originally written in 1865 by author Lewis Carroll, it’s a story that’s been retold and re-imagined by many over the decades, and it’s as if every generation has their own Alice. Why are we still so fascinated by Alice after all these years? The story itself is filled with puzzles, riddles, and conundrums that are open to so many interpretations. What’s more, each character has become a star in their own right – from the White Rabbit to the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts, they’ve all become a part of pop culture for every generation.
Now, the Claremont Forum, in partnership with the Claremont Gallery, is hosting an interactive Alice in Wonderland exhibition titled “Books Come Alive: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,” which will be on display March 31 & April from 6-9 PM both nights.
The exhibition takes visitors through the looking glass with art installation, interactive art demonstrations, themed art, and entertainment.
It’s filled with videos of various Alice in Wonderland clips, as well as installations that make for beautiful photo backdrops, make your own tea cup Mad Hatter’s tea party, meet and greet with Alice on Saturday April 1st from 6:30 - 8:30 PM, and a performance by Shama Mamas Friday, March 31 from 6-9 PM.
Before leaving the exhibition, visit the Bookshop to experience our "Down the Rabbit Hole" gallery exhibit and pick up a copy of the beloved book series, specially ordered for this event to inspire children of all ages.
The exhibition is curated by ReSpun Retro Jewelry in collaboration with GonzoGarble Woodworking.
