The new exhibit from Reggio Emilia , Italy I wrote about last month is now open at the Indiana Statehouse. This is the exhibit’s first Midwestern stop and only its third appearance in the United States. Dr. Ena Shelley, Dean of the College of Education at Butler University addressed a crowd of supporters July 17 at the ribbon cutting ceremony.
“The Wonder of Learning the Hundred Languages of Children” is a continuously updated travelling exhibition that has been telling the story of the Reggio Emilia educational experience worldwide to thousands of visitors for over 25 years.” Dr. Shelley mentioned in her remarks that educators from as far away as Ontario, Canada have indicated they are going to visit the exhibit which runs through December 18. The exhibit starts near the rotunda on the first floor of the statehouse and continues on the second and third floors. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Statehouse hours are Monday- Friday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturday from 10:00 am-2:00 pm. Click on any of the pictures below to see a larger image.
