In celebration of "Frog and Toad and the World of Arnold Lobel," The Contemporary Jewish Museum's Community Day is an admission-free, fun-for-all extravaganza. The exhibition features over 100 original illustrations and works on paper highlighting Lobel’s detailed illustration technique and warm, funny tales of love and friendship, mostly among animal friends. Lobel subtly reflected on human foibles in a charming world populated by a talking frog, a toad, an owl, mice, kangaroos, and other colorful creatures.

The schedule of events include:

Art-Making
Step into the Frog and Toad Studios to create your Animal character puppets and miniature ponds.

Music Performances
Grammy nominated duo The Pop Ups perform their music using cardboard props, hand-painted sets, and a colorful cast of original puppets; crafting a world of magic that engages, educates, and delights all ages. Performances at 11:30am and 2pm. Tickets for the Pop-Ups performances available on a first-come, first-serve basis on the day of the event and are extremely limited.

Eating
Hungry guests can enjoy a special menu from the Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen from 11am–3pm. Select menu items include: Pastrami, Corned Beef, Smoked Fish, and Matzo Ball Soup. Locally Roasted Coffee & Espresso by De La Paz.
