Thank you to the Amor Fati Ensemble for the fabulous evening of improvised dance storytelling about the museum. Our hearts are so full!
Thank you also to Loretta Tennant for being our featured artist in the garden on Wednesday, August 14th. It was a real treat for the many visitors (including young kids) to get to try out her practice wheel and learn about drum carding from Donna.
