Ney Day! Celebrating Women in Arts, Sciences, and Civic Culture

I am excited to be participating again this year in the Elisabet Ney Museum's Ney Day Celebration!
I will be hosting a make and take printmaking booth where visitors will get to create their own styrofoam print. Many other vendors, arts activities, culture, and music will be there at this free family friendly event.
