Digital finds and virtual art activities to keep you informed and entertained.
Even the trees were interesting at the SFA Mast Arboretum and sculpture garden in Nacogdoches. We were in East Texas for some essential travel, and saw a small window for a quiet, uncrowded art adventure along the way. The arboretum is full of interesting sculptures, like this one by Dewane Hughes.
In other news, you may have noticed that we have redesigned our Web site. This time of reflection, refocus and pivots continues, and we wanted to make sure that it is easy for readers to find what interests them, and also to understand where we fit in the greater art ecosystem. I (Stephanie) designed the site to focus more on content, tips and tools for DIY art adventures, as our timing for in-person service delivery seems to move farther out each week. We are grateful that we're small, new and agile enough that we can adapt to fulfill our mission in many different ways!
