Where the Brick Works meets the Museum
All ‘round the Museum, inside and out, you’ll notice these big pink signs displaying a little fact about our history. This one is my favourite. Our Head of Facilities likes to tell me that not only does the Museum hold artifacts and specimens but it is one itself with an important place in Toronto’s history.
I find new cool stuff every time I go
"Find new cool stuff every time" should be our new tagline.
I like to make cameo appearances with our film group ‘Lights, Camera, Action’! This shoot was for a PSA where I play a dude suffering from #selfieitus. I don’t take selfies on the regular so this role was a lot of fun to indulge in. To help make the scene authentic we actually took the pictures.
Here’s 1 of 27 from the shoot.
We had a ton of fun with the Fort York Guard and Fife and Drum Corps yesterday at the Museum. These kids even wore matching outfits!
The event came together due a number of events happening at the Fort. Their soldiers are visiting various venues across the city in the mean time.
Thanks to everyone who came out!
Summer Club 2014 was ALREADY our largest camp ever in May (LONG before camp started), exceeding last year’s record set at the end of the summer. To help make this work we have a huge crew of great staff (many former campers!) including 117 volunteers, 42 assistants, and 21 instructors. Of course there’s also the rest of the Museum! Staff from all the over ROM take part in camp, through tours of collections, guest appearances, setting up spaces, or even just marveling at our campers amazing art. Shout out to ROM staff who also send their kids to camp too! You’ll see us throughout the Museum for the next 9 weeks, gaining inspiration from the amazing galleries, learning from our fantastic instructors and making friends to last a life time (I know I have!).
- To see more from Summer Club follow along at #summerclub2014 on twitter. We’ll also be posting quite a bit on Tumblr too!
We can’t wait to get back to our favourite time of the year!
Everybody go exploring! Also visit your local museum.
