Museum GO Round 2007 needs you!
What it is. Museum Go Round (MGR), our most anticipated event, is a street festival - complete with hands-on activities, workshops, food, and entertainment - designed for young artists (18 and under) to show and sell their work. Every year we have over 100 young artists participate with everything from sculpture to hand-made cards; jewelry to paintings; flip flops to photography. Designed to provide a real-world experience, MGR provides our young artists the challenge of overhead, display, customer service and profits (all theirs to keep, by the way!).
What you need to know. It all happens on Saturday, September 22. We’ll close Short Street (from Broadway to Felix Street) for the day. “Booths” are $10.00. Individuals or groups are encouraged to participate. The event runs 11am until 4pm.
What you can do. Join us! You’ll find a MGR Artist Application here. Print it out and send it in. Any art form is acceptable as long as it’s yours. After we receive your application, we’ll follow up with you: confirm your space, give you set-up information and any other details as they develop.
The Kentucky Arts Council, a state agency in the Commerce Cabinet, provides operational support funding for Explorium of Lexington with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

Museum Go Round at the Explorium
Since I, Stevie, work at the Explorium, I wanted to inform all of my fellow comic creators of a dandy little event called the Museum Go Round. The Museum Go Round is a big deal as far as events go at the Explorium and is basically a special event for youngsters (18 and under) to become vendors and sell their art. The Museum admission is free that Saturday SEPTEMBER THE 22nd and there is an application for kids to operate a table and also for a group such as ours to operate a demo table. I already have the application and I would be really excited about operating a workshop on cartooning that day whilst simultaneously promoting our club to tons of kids. Here is a cut and paste of the basic info from the Explorium website, (www.explorium.com), let me know what you think.
