Story Saturday: I Want to be a Vase

Bruce Galleries

Join us in the Ailsa Mellon Bruce Decorative Arts and Design galleries for an in-person story time with curatorial assistant Alyssa Velazquez! This month we'll be reading I Want to be a Vase by Julio Torres and illustrated by Julian Glander followed by a making activity for children 12 and under led by teaching artist Jena Schieb.

This reading is made possible by Atheneum Books for Young Readers. To purchase past and present Story Saturday titles, checkout Carnegie Museum of Art Museum Store's online reading section.

About the Book
A plucky Plunger wishes to defy his shape and become a beautiful vase. In talking about their dream to become a vase, the plunger inspires other household appliances to look beyond what they were made to do and rethink who they want to be.
