Running through the month of March at Criss Library, To Grow Up Healthy and Free: The Child’s Right to Play, showcases the many ways children play locally, nationally, and around the world. Inspired by Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, “That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts,” the exhibit features hands-on play centers; descriptions and photos of play from different countries; and artwork created by UNO students and children from the UNO Child Care Center.
The exhibit is sponsored by the UNO Early Childhood Education/Child Welfare Campus Priority committee, and is curated by Drs. Melissa Cast-Brede and Debora Wisneski from the College of Education.
