Happy New Year from the Margret and H.A. Rey Center! The Rey Center staff and Board of Directors are looking forward to another year of celebrating the legacy of Margret and Hans Rey in Waterville Valley with our members and friends. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters over the past year. With your help we had a successful year filled with programs that honor the Reys’ spirit of curiosity and discovery, programs that provide people with the opportunity to learn about and participate in art, science and nature. We hope that you will join us in 2011 for some of our many programs for all ages, and wish everyone the best for a year filled with curiosity and discovery!
If you haven’t had the opportunity to stop-by the Rey Center to view our current exhibit sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council, “The Wartime Escape: Margret and H.A. Reys’ Journey from France,” we highly encourage you to do so! The exhibit, at the Rey Center through January 19, chronicles the Reys’ escape from Paris at the start of WWII. More than just the tale of a rousing escape from occupied France, the exhibition celebrates a timeless survival story, one that serves as a potent reminder of the power of human creativity and the cost when voices and visions are silenced by the impact of war.
