The Brooks Welcomes Elesha Newberry, Our New Tour Coordinator!

Wacky Wednesdays, tours for children and adults, Family Days: as the new tour coordinator, I’ve already gotten a chance to experience the wide range of programs the Brooks offers during the summer. Last Friday, I was able to take part in my first Art for Lunch, which consisted of a tour of The Soul of a City exhibit and then lunch at the Brushmark. Tagging along on the tour, I learned about the exhibit from one of our volunteer docents, and having lunch with the group, I got to meet and talk with people interested in art and food – two of my favorite things! I’m already looking forward to the next one in a couple of weeks on August 17th.

Here’s a pic of my favorite piece in the Soul of a City exhibit:
