NGU Sponsoring ‘World of Jan Brett’ at Upcountry History Museum

"The World of Jan Brett," a hands-on exhibit, opened in Greenville, SC, on September 23, 2017. The exhibit will be available for viewing through January 28, 2018 and will feature original artwork and interactive, themed reading environments fabricated by the Upcountry History Museum.

North Greenville University, along with Duke Energy, Becky and Bobby Hartness, and the Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® are sponsoring the event.

The exhibit will explore original artwork by beloved children’s author and illustrator, Jan Brett, and offer children the opportunity to play in an interactive gallery. Guests will be able to join the characters from their favorite books as they play a life-size board game. Children will be able to grab a book and share a story with their loved ones in the museum’s reading nook and travel to distant lands through Brett’s paintings, inspired by countries and cultures the world over.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Upcountry History Museum,” said NGU Director of Marketing Erin Wall. “This is a great opportunity [for NGU] to reach out to our community. It will also extend our reach to educators and gives us an opportunity to give back to Greenville and the surrounding areas.”

In addition, Brett will be making an appearance at the museum on November 30 for a drawing demonstration and book signing.
