Greetings fellow explorers! I am super excited to share this week’s find. As an artist and a teacher I am always encouraging collaboration. Magical things happen! So when I discovered Backroom Pop-Up Bar, Johalla Projects art gallery, and the Field Museum were presenting, Celebrating Specimens, I couldn’t wait to check it out.
The Tank at Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, 12 S Michigan Avenue
Now through March 25, Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm – midnight, enjoy a tasty beverage from James Beard Award semifinalist, Paul McGee while exploring real specimens, observing museum experts in action and then joining in on projects and activities.
Field Museum’s Chief Preparator, Akiko Shinya gives the presentation, Dig Your Own Dinosaur
And then, WE DID!
Great fun while we gathered as a community, learned and laughed! Like I said, magical things happen when you collaborate!
Alright, Betty and I are off on our next journey. We’re inviting you to join in, explore, look for art and artistic expression everywhere, post your experience here and SHOW ME WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!
