Friends of Decorative Arts: “A Museum Store: What Is It?”
Museum Store Manager Audrie Rañon will examine “A Museum Store: What Is It?” She will focus on the differences between a museum gift shop and store and will emphasize the latter’s educational mission. Mrs. Rañon has involved visual and craft artists and authors, among others, in a host of educational programs and special events in the store and in the larger museum.
The decorative arts have been an important part of the Museum collection from the very beginning. FODA programs are entertaining and informative and provide opportunities to make new friends. Annual dues are $20, in addition to Museum membership. To join, please contact Membership Coordinator Kathryn Reina: Kathryn@fine-arts.org or 727.896.2667, ext. 248. Non-FODA members can attend programs for $5, plus MFA admission. Carolyn Nygren is the volunteer coordinator. These programs will be held on the second Tuesday of the month at 2 p.m.
