Artist, educator and WHQR commentator Claude Howell was born 100 years ago this week. Howell played key roles in establishing UNCWilmington's art department and the Cameron Art Museum, where a celebration of his life is scheduled tomorrow night at 7 PM. We've been celebrating with some of Claude's WHQR Commentaries this week on Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
The Cameron Art Museum offers great summer workshops, classes and camps for youth and adults. Donna Moore (The Museum School Director) and Georgia Mastroieni (Director of Youth and Family Education) give us the rundown.
On Friday, January 10th, WHQR hosted the Second Annual Day Sponsor Party at The Cameron Art Museum. The even was a huge success and it was wonderful to see so many people of this gathering! Were you there? Our volunteer photographers Paul Reinmann and Linsey McGrath documented the event with some great photgraphs. For a full gallery of photos from the event visit WHQR's Facebook Gallery!
For WHQR’s Midday Interview, News Director Michelle Bliss talked to Georgia Mastroieni. She’s the curator of education for the Cameron Art Museum which offers the Connections Alzheimer’s tours. The program recently received a grant that will further its offerings to include hands-on art projects. Melannie Pate was also in the studio—she’s the office manager for the Wilmington branch of Alzheimer’s NC.
