Museum Visitors Paint Tributes in Honor of Orlando Victims

Young museum visitor paints Stars of HOPE for victims in Orlando.

This week, museum visitors, including families with children, were invited to paint Stars of HOPE with messages of peace and hope to send to victims in Orlando.

Working with materials from the non-profit New York Says Thank You, Stars of HOPE were decorated with positive message and multi-colors.

"Stars of Hope is a way for kids to understand and respond to the attack in Orlando in a way that is meaningful and makes sense to them," said education specialist Chelsea Schwerin."By painting a star, they become part of the tradition of kindness, love, and coming together that follows tragedies like 9/11 and Orlando."

Activity Stations will begin a summer schedule on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays starting July 6.
