Stories Past part of TAM award

The Tennessee Association of museums meeting (TAM) reminded me that I really need to spend more time in Chattanooga. Conference attendees saw some great African art at the African American museum and had plenty of fun at the Children's museum. Give adults freedom from the watching eyes of children and they will bang instruments with the best of them. I was taken by the application that took your picture and then showed it back to you in different art styles – very clever.

The conference highlight had to be the exhibit award for the Oak Ridge Children’s Museum. Stories Past was very happy to be part of exhibit and pleased at our first Tennessee recognition.

Conference thoughts

Just back from the CAA conference and thinking about the people I've met over the last week at TAM VAM and CAA. Many thoughts, that I'll try and tease out over the next few weeks, but thanks to everyone who stopped by the Stories Past booth at TAM and VAM, and to the folks at CAA who fired my creative juices.

Time to sleep, and think of hovering slowly over the earth peering into every field, flying through the Swiss mountains and throwing down memory markers for myself and friends .... wait that's Google Earth.
