A new exhibit is set to open at the Scott Family Amazeum. The exhibit is titled “Creativity Cubed – Think Outside the Blocks” and it will explore science, engineering and the art of building blocks. Unlike some previous exhibits, this one is entirely created by the Amazeum team. The exhibit opens to Amazeum members this Friday and then to the general public on Saturday. Due to reduced capacity at the Amazeum, reservations are required for entry tickets. For this weekend you’re encouraged to reserve tickets now and review health and safety protocols before your arrival.
We love to talk about how our community gives back and we talked about the Holidaze Pop-Up Bar several times during December. True to their word, they donated proceeds to several non-profits: the Fayetteville Independent Restaurant Alliance, NWA Equality, Peace at Home family Shelter, Roots Festivals Meals for Musicians and Walton Arts Center. The grand total was over $9,000 donated to these charities.
