Editor’s Desk: August 2015

August 1, 2015 Volume 2 / Number 8 Hello everybody! The eight month of the year has arrived. To me August is when Summer is beginning to slow down to a close, pretty soon the kids will be back to school. Speaking of that, this month will be the last to show the At the Museum Kids Summer Guide. Not too much going on this month, because maybe we’re just catching up from the lazy days of Summer. Saulius is still Shadowbox’s Summer Spotlight Artist. The post is still available for you to get to know this up and coming artist.

At the Museum Kids Summer Edition for this year is at the peak. We’re looking high and wide for what kids and families can look forward to at their local museums. For those of you who may not have read last week’s announcement post, I’ve decided to make a Summer Spotlight Artist Feature. Saulius is this summer’s spotlight artist and will continue through August. Check …
