Artist Michael Albert brings his “modern pop art experience” to Howland Public Library. Children ages 5 and up are invited to the Superhero Cereal Box Collage Workshop at the library located at 313 Main St. in Beacon on Tuesday, Aug. 11, from 3 to 5 p.m. New York artist Albert will conduct a unique hands-on, recycled collage workshop consisting of cereal box art and favorite superheroes. Participants will learn about Albert’s art and his book, An Artist’s America, and view a small exhibition of his posters. Albert will have a free art gift for all participants.
