I am using my real name.
My nephew sent me a link to an event that included a link to the Meetup homepage, I went there and did a search for groups I would be interested in. The Twin Cities Museum Meetup group stood out immediately and it was my first pick : )
I'm interested in learning the history and meaning of everything. When I lived in Iowa, I worked for a local history society on grant-funded projects and in an array of volunteer jobs, ranging from exhibition design to collections management. I'm a visual artist that appreciates how all forms of artwork play a role in history (BFA drawing/painting/printmaking with lots of art history coursework). I volunteer at the MIA and the ASI.

My curiosity for what museums show and tell goes back as far as I can remember. I love learning about a wide variety of subjects and I like going to all types of museums.
