Mummers, WHYY and Artblog – Second Roundtable at Independence Free Library, Feb 27, 5:30 pm

Dear People, we had a technical glitch in yesterday's newsletter resulting in an old newsletter being sent out with dated and wrong information in it about an event that Artblog is participating in with WHYY and the Mummers. We regret the mistake and are sorry about any confusion that resulted! Below is the correct information about the Mummers event with WHYY and Artblog at the Free Library on 7th St. near Market. I hope you can join us!

Artblog, WHYY and the Mummers Second Rountable Discussion Tuesday, Feb. 27, 5:30 pm
As part of our N.I.C.E. partnership with WHYY, We were invited to participate in a series of two Bridging Blocks roundtable discussions about the Mummers. Ryan and I attended a planning meeting at the Mummers Museum, and I attended the first roundtable event on Feb. 15 at the Mummers Museum. Here’s the WHYY write up about it. (See me pictured in the photo with just about everybody’s hand raised to show they were Mummers or had a Mummer in the family.)

There is a second Mummers roundtable scheduled for Feb. 27, 5:30 pm, at the Independence Free Library, 18 S. 7th St. Information and registration here. I hope to see you there!
