Art Merit Badge follow-up

Scouters,

Those that were in the ART Merit Badge:

Turn ion your paperwork to Mrs Peters or Nathan Peters

Also I want them to attend the Grounds for Sculpture for their art visit.  We will be going on Saturday September 27th.  You would meet  Mr and Mrs Peters there @ 10am.  You need to provide their own transportation.

126 Sculptors Way
Hamilton Township, NJ  08619

Cost: $10 student 6-17
$15 adults

There is a very popular exhibit there right now with record numbers of people attending.  It is very important that everyone meet on time so that we can get in.  Attending an art museum is one of the requirements for the merit badge.

One of the exhibits:

Seward Johnson: The Retrospective presents an overview of the popular sculptor’s 50-year career through a lifetime collection of his works, including Forever Marilyn, the 26-foot tall, 36,000-pound Marilyn Monroe sculpture from his Icons Revisited series, as well as the lifelike bronze figures of ordinary people that are familiar sights throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia from hisCelebrating the Familiar series.

Once we talk about the exhibits there, the boys can move freely and leave when they are done.  They need to check in with Mrs Peters, who you are with. 

 Mrs Peters
