    The Hingham Public Library is very pleased to be launching an Artist-in-Residence pilot program connecting the arts with literature. Children ages 5-10 and their families are invited to meet the inaugural artists, Nikki Hu and Guy Van Duser, at our drop-in October open houses and sign up for the Artist-in-Residence series which will begin in January.

    Choreographer Nikki Hu and musician Guy Van Duser are master teaching artists who are noted for bringing book subjects to life through dancing and music. At the open house Nikki will work with children to present The Dance of Ten Movements, attributed to Japanese dancer Michio Ito, which Nikki has adapted into a dance for children, set to Guy's beautiful original music.

    This Artist-in-Residence pilot program honors the memory of Dr. Jane Murphy Gaughen and is funded by the Harold and Avis Goldstein Charitable Trust.
