Catching up

We have had so much going on in the museum the past week that we have barely been able to capture it all. You can of course check it all out at our YouTube page, and while we are on the subject I will take just a moment to mention that we have shot up the charts to the #10 most viewed non profit page of the day, #31 of the week, and #80 of the month. Thanks for all your video viewing! Since I haven’t posted my daily recap videos in awhile I thought I would overload your senses and put all the videos up at once.

Enjoy!

Four stars for All-Stars

Greg Haymes from Albany Times Union loved the All Stars concert on Saturday. We hope you did too.

AND a note about the Marathon this Saturday. We’ve been promoting the performance of the mixed media oratorio Shelter in conjunction with Ridge Theater but we should make it clear that the films for the work are by Bill Morrison and the projections are by Laurie Olinder. Don’t miss this great weekend of music.
