Music and Children playing in Washington Park

 Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

I took my grandson, Kai to Washington Park for his outdoor activity on Wednesday, September 11, 2019.  I thought Kai was eager to see his little friend, named London that he played with last time.  We did not see her, but we saw a music band performing at one end of the park.  I suggested to kai that we go to the Library because she might be there, and if not, we can come back to the park because she might be here later.  Kai agreed, and we walked to the library which took about five minutes.  We stayed in the children room of library for an hour or so, then kai and I headed back to the park.    

Kai and I walked past the music band that was still performing. 

We saw the Ballantine House and Newark Museum on Washington Street, opposite the park.

The musicians had stopped playing, and were ready to end their performance for the day.

Kai was searching for his little friend, London.  He carried his blue ball intending to play with her.

He saw her little body standing behind the red bush.  He ran as fast as he could to meet her.

She seemed to be as eager to see Kai as Kai was to see her.

Kai played ball with London.

London and Kai enjoyed playing football together.  London was so glad to see us as she told us about what was she doing before we arrived. 

Kai was teasing London by stealing the ball from her hand and letting London chasing him.

He sat on the ball so that London could not get the ball.  I told London “Take the ball out from the back of Kai!”  So, London tried to pull the ball out.

Kai still teasing London.  Then London said nicely to Kai “May I have the ball?”

Kai tossed the ball so that London could run and get it.  Then Kai went to played with the pole.

London tossed the ball up high and Kai tried to catch it.

Little London showed her cleaver foot work with the ball like an experienced athlete.

“Grandma look at this!”, Kai said to me loudly.  He knows that Grandma loves Butterflies.

They both enjoyed playing with the poles.

Kai and London ran to the lady who brought her dog to walk in the park.  She was nice enough to let the kids play with the little cute dog.

Kai and London had a good time playing and jumping between the round seating stands.

Kai showed me the artwork at the base of the pole.

London went to the other pole and showed me the bird design.

Kai and London were having very good time playing with each other.

They ran to under the tree and tried to catch the lower leaves.

Then they played hide and seek.

They played and ran all over the park until they both fell down on the grass.

Now they found some wood and played with the dusty earth.

Kai used a twig to write his name.

Kai tried to exchange his sticks with London’s piece of wood and a brick.  Kai took London things without her agreeing.  I told Kai to return London’s belongings.

I gave Kai a little book that I brought with me for Kai to read to London.  Kai gave the book to London to see and then he took it back.  He went to sit at the base of the tree and looked at the book by himself.

Kai and London went to see the line of students that came out of the North Star Academy Charter school of Newark, located opposite one end of the park.

I told Kai that we had to leave because Mommy will come to pick you up soon.  We walked London back to where her mother and family were sitting.  They seemed to be sad to say good bye.

After we left London, Kai asked me to go back.  He said he want to say something to London.  I took Kai back to see London again.  Then Kai and I walked back home.  While we were walking, I asked Kai “What did you say to London?”  Kai said I forget to tell her, “Thank you for playing with me.  I really had a good time.”

I also felt a bit sad that I had to take Kai away.  They had a very good time and got along with each other quite well.  This occasion reminded me of when I was young playing with my sisters.  Everything seemed to be bright and nice, with no worries and nothing to be afraid of, as the world happily belonged to us. We did not know much how our parents or other adults had to go though in their lives to survive day by day.  This innocence and ignorance of the future gave us a simple happiness that I long for once again.

In addition to its extensive art collections, the Newark Museum is dedicated to natural science. It includes the Dreyfuss Planetarium and the Victoria Hall of Science which highlights selections from the museum’s 70,000 specimen Natural Science Collection. The Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden, located behind the museum, houses numerous works of contemporary sculpture and is the setting for community programs, concerts and performances. The garden is also home to a 1784 old stone schoolhouse and the Newark Fire Museum.

 The museum was founded in 1909 by librarian and reformer John Cotton Dana. As the charter described it, the purpose was “to establish in the City of Newark, New Jersey, a museum for the reception and exhibition of articles of art, science, history and technology, and for the encouragement of the study of the arts and sciences.” The kernel of the museum was a collection of Japanese prints, silks, and porcelains assembled by a Newark harmacist.[4]

Originally located on the fourth floor of the Newark Public Library, the museum moved into its own purpose-built structure in the 1920s on Washington Park after a gift by Louis Bamberger. It was designed by Jarvis Hunt, who also designed Bamberger’s flagship Newark store.[5][6] Since then, the museum has expanded several times, to the south into the red brick former YMCA and to the north into the 1885 Ballantine House, by means of a four-year, $23 million renovation[7]. In 1990, the museum expanded to the west into an existing acquired building. At that time much of the museum, including the new addition, was redesigned by Michael Graves.

The museum had a mini-zoo with small animals for some twenty years, until August 2010.[8]

For the security of climate-sensitive artwork, the museum closed its front entrance to the public in 1997 to minimize the effects of temperature and humidity changes. However, in February 2018, after extensive renovation and the construction of a ramp for disabled access, the front doors were reopened.[9]

The museum is open from 12 to 5 pm from Wednesdays to Sundays and is free for Newark residents[10].

The Newark Black Film Festival is held every summer at the museum.

The Ballantine House

The Ballantine house is a preserved and restored house from the Victorian Era, designed by architect George Edward Harney. It was home to John Holme Ballantine, his wife, Jeannette, and their children, John, Robert, Alice, and Percy. Mr. Ballantine owned and ran a brewery in the Ironbound section of Newark. The house originally had twenty-seven rooms and three floors. In 1937, the Newark Museum bought the house and has since restored it to serve as galleries for the extensive decorative arts collections.

MakerSPACE at Newark Museum

The MakerSPACE at the Newark Museum is “an interactive area where visitors of all ages play, tinker and create as they make connections between the materials, processes and concepts of artwork and natural science objects in the Museum’s collections and their own creativity.” [11] John Cotton Dana, the founder of the museum, believed that “the worth of a museum is in its use.” [12] The museum has carried on this legacy of incorporation of the immediate community by opening a MakerSPACE. The museum even displays some of the artwork that is made in the space. The space includes many advanced tools, such as a laser cutter/engraver, 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, pottery wheels, sewing machines, relief and silk screen printing equipment, and various hand tools like saws, hammers, and screwdrivers. The MakerSPACE is open every Saturday 1-4PM for drop-in activities.

Kai in front of the Newark Museum entrance.

Kai was so eager to go up on the steps to the Museum entrance. Then he decided to come down and went up again a couple times until he was satisfied.  He was so proud of himself when he came down the last time.

Kai spotted a large foot object in front of The Ballantine House, which is a part of the Newark Museum.  He looked at the sculpture and started to count the toes.  He said “Nine toes!  Grandma!”  He counted again, he said “Nine toes, not ten toes!”  I told Kai that probably the big toes of both feet are joining together.

Kai walked to the back of the sculpture.  He started to climb up.  I told him that he cannot climb up on the sculpture, it is not like an object in the playground.  Kai seemed to be disappointed but he listened and walk away.

Kai & Teacher, Ms. Fran Garrido in Creative Play at the Newark Museum, July 17, 201

Kai and I walked to the Newark Museum from home about 9:45 am and we reached the museum a little bit before 10 am which took us about ten minutes’ walk.  The security guard told us to wait for Ms. Fran Garrido.  She is an Early Childhood Coordinator who is in charge of the Creative play program.  The class runs from 10-11 am on Wednesday through Friday.  It is a one-hour program, especially for Early Learners ages 3-5.  It includes a visit to a gallery and an activity.  Kai, our grandson, is three years and 9 months old. He is just the right age to attend the program.  Ms. Garrido came to greet us with two carrier bags, one full of stuffed animal toys and the other bag had small pads for sitting.  She said to wait for a while maybe some other children might come, she will talk about loneliness today.  She gave Kai a stuffed penguin toy to have as a friend.  

No one else came so Ms. Garrido took us to an art gallery that had a realistic sculpture of a man sitting on the lawn mower by himself, which makes him look a bit lonely.  Ms. Garrido asked Kai what is lonely?  Kai said “Sad”.  Kai wanted another friend for his penguin toy.  He selected another penguin toy and tried sitting it on the pad.  He managed to get the first toy to sit but not the second toy.  Ms. Garrido tried to get the second one to sit.  She tried for a while and finally did get the toy to sit on the pad.  She yelled out with joy “I did it.”  They both had a good laugh.  She talked and asked Kai some questions showing Kai the artwork in the room.  Kai went in the toy bags and took out all the toys to sit on the pads.   

Ms. Garrido told Kai that she was going to read him a book about being lonely.  Suddenly, Kai got up and started to rearrange all the toys neatly in a line.  Ms. Garrido asked him where are you going to sit?  Kai took out a pad and put it at the end of the line of toys and sat listening to the teacher reads the book to him and all of his toy friends. 

Title: Man, on a Mower

Artist: Duane Hanson

Kai enjoyed the story.  Both teacher and student had a good conversation.  They discussed the story of the lonely character who is sad because he had no friend but if he looks around him, he will find a lot of friends.

After the story ended, Ms. Garrido said we have to go to another room.  Kai got up grabbing all his toy friends in his arms.  He put them in the bag and carried the bag on his shoulder.  Ms. Garrido said, “Is it too heavy for you?”  Kai said yes and suggested, “How about you carry one side and I carry the other side of the bag?”  Both of them walked out of the room then Kai turn back and said “Come on Grandma!”  He said this a couple times while we were walking to the other destination.  

We walked to the next room where we saw this painting.  Kai pointed at the artwork and said “Grandma look at this!”  Ms. Garrido joined Kai looking at the painting and pointed out some areas of the artwork to Kai.

We arrived at the “Maker Space” room.  Ms. Garrido introduced Kai to a group of people who were practicing a dance routine.

She showed Kai her book about Loneliness and told Kai to make his first book.  He selected a green marker to draw with while they talked.  She gave some suggestions and asked Kai some questions.

Kai drew pictures of himself, one of them he said looked like a potato head.  Ms. Garrido suggested Kai use the other colors.  He put other colors next to him but still continued to use green marker, saying that he loves the color green.  Ms. Garrido asked him what things are green outside. Kai hesitated to answer.

Ms. Garrido lifted her arms up and said “The trees have many green leaves.”  Then Kai said the ground has green too, it’s the grass.  She said put them in your drawing.  Kai drew a few short strokes on his paper and next to them he drew a tall line with something on top.  It probably represents a tree for him.

It was very nice to see Kai make his first book binding it together with Ms. Garrido.  Kai learned a lot from her guidance and patience, encouraging him to learn and having a great time with her.

Kai was so proud to make his first book.  He showed it to his parents and his grandfather John.  He said he is going to show his book to his Papa (Great-grandfather), Pa (Grandfather Jim), Nana (Grandmother Maria) and four cousins when he has a chance to see them.

Ms. Garrido still stayed helping Kai with the toy train, even though her lesson had ended.

Kai was very interested in playing with toy train, at the “Maker Space” room.

She showed Kai the Step inside the City area where there are the mirrors and colorful lights.

From Inside the museum compound at Horizon Plaza, we saw St. Patrick’s Pro-Cathedral on Central Ave.  A light blue tall building is the New Prudential building, looked toward Washington Street.

Before we reached the Newark Museum, while waiting for the traffic light between Central Ave. and Washington Street.  Further away on Washing Street is a tall commercial building, next to James Street where another Old church located, next to it are the Library and Rutgers Business School. Newark Museum is located in the center of activities of Downtown Newark.

Kai at the Maker Space room, in the Mezzanine, of the Newark Museum on Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

The lady who takes care of the room showed Kai the big foam blocks that he can build something from.

Kai constructed a form of a tall building.

Suddenly, after Kai finished his building, he knocked his building down.  He seemed to enjoy it.  I think he was acting like Godzilla who likes to destroy buildings by knocking them down.  Kai loves to watch Godzilla movies.  He goes to John and asks him to turn on the Godzilla movies.  I have to talk to John about this instance.

Kai drove into his building and then he lied flat on the floor.

Kai wanted to play hide and seek in the hiding place.

Time to go home, Kai put the foam blocks back where they belong, but still wanted to play for last time.  He said “I will build the chair to sit on.”

Kai was sitting happily on his throne.

Ms. Fran Garrido, Early Childhood Coordinator gave me the information about their activities for children.

Monarch Butterfly, Saturday, July 20, 2019

Poem and Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

Oh!  Monarch Butterfly!!!

You come to visit me again this year

You are the first one

I see today on Saturday, July 20, 2019

You look lovely as always

We are ready for you

With my beautiful purple butterfly bush flowers

All in full bloom

The nectar you need to survive to fly to your mate

And for you to lay your eggs

Your little ones of the next generation

The nectar is here for you

Thanks for fertilizing the flowers

Some will produce fruits

For human to consume

You not only beautify the world

With your pretty wings

Your also benefit the trees

Providing fruits for creatures of the earth

We need you

I am longing to see you

You make me so happy

Capturing you in my camcorder

For other to see

You give joy to me

My day is complete

Oh!  My Monarch Butterfly!!!

I love you
