The week of February 29-March 4, Phillips staff presented at the National Art Education Association’s conference in New York City.

We presented on several topics, including this beloved blog, which has become important to the museum’s virtual persona. The presentation highlighted the blog’s collaborative nature as well as the readers’ involvement.

The session concluded with audience members drawing or writing what they gleaned about The Experiment Station in Elizabeth Graeber’s illustrated picture frames:
