To launch the Froebel Decade theme for 2014: Froebel and Nature, children around the world will be planting fruit trees and caring for them to celebrate the birthday of Friedrich Froebel on 21 April. This contributes to the preservation of the educational landscape imagined by Friedrich Froebel with his neologism “kindergarten”: educational spaces that combine caring for plants, active learning and music.

During 2014, the Director of the Froebel Gallery will curate an online exhibition on the Froebel Decade theme for this year, which is “Froebel and Nature”.

Expressions of interest are invited in a variety of styles and media. Froebel Gallery artists are not followers of trends, but rather interpreters of various aspects of life which they create for themselves and the viewer. The Gallery strives to enrich the immediate community of New York’s Capital District, while creating opportunities for artists to progress, develop, and interact with an appreciative public. The Gallery’s philosophy follows closely that of Friedrich Froebel, that diversity is natural and desirable.
