Chagall for Children Opening at Kohl with Cirque Shanghai

On Tuesday June 19, cast members from Cirque Shanghai: Year of the Dragon will be attending the Kohl Children’s Museum opening of “Chagall for Children” for a special performance celebrating Marc Chagall’s famous painting “At The Circus”

I had written about Kohl Children's Museum's one of the most popular exhibits in history - Chagall for Children starting June 18. Seems like a fabulous, very hands on exhibit for children already interested in art and even better to get them more interested with all these interactive, multi-sensory stations.

Also Cirque Shanghai which continues to thrill audiences of all ages at Navy Pier since May 24 and impressed us last year with their charming and amiable crew. My kids can't wait to go back to watch it tonight.

So a rendezvous of the two, to me, sounds like a perfect outing with kids out from school on a hot summer day.

The schedule for the day is as follows:

9:45am – Children are invited to participate in the creation of a large sidewalk mural echoing Marc Chagall’s paintings.
10:00am – Opening of the “Chagall for Children” exhibit.
10:30am – Performance from Cirque Shanghai cast members including Contortion, Juggling and the “Roly Poly.”

“Chagall for Children” runs through September 2.

“Cirque Shanghai: Year of the Dragon” runs through September 3.
