September Updated Toy Window
Director Steve did the annual change over to what we have on display in the Grand Avenue Toy Window. A favorite of children of all ages, the museum often modifies what is on exhibit and sometimes supplements the artifacts with those from other collectors. Fewer board games but more family table-top items make up this year's collection. Mercano, Table Tennis, a Play Tea Set and Bird Lotto are just some of the dozens to see.
Chudnow Staff Training at Kohler Art Center
In November, the entire staff (both of us) spent a workshop day at the Kohler Art Center learning guidelines and techniques useful in the SPARK! program. The program is for museums serving Wisconsin & Minnesota residents extending their cultural and historical collections to create meaningful experiences for older adults with memory loss. SPARK!
