Campbell Contemporaries » 4.5.12

One of the wascally wabbits at Citygarden. Alas, he does not have a supply of chocolate, cream-filled eggs.

Looking for something to do over the next couple of weeks? Here are some staff recommendations to keep your social calendar hopping (terrible pun clearly intended):

Friday, April 6

Saturday, April 7

Sunday, April 8

  • Celebrate Easter throughout St. Louis. Our friends at Explore St. Louis have compiled a list of places to go (and chocolate to eat!) on Sunday.
  • Director Andy suggests a leisurely nature walk through the grounds of Bellefontaine Cemetery. Make sure you check out the Campbell plot while you’re there. (Trust us. It’s. Not. Morbid.)
  • See the big white wabbits at Citygarden.

Thursday, April 12 through Saturday, April 14

Friday, April 13

Saturday, April 14 through Sunday, April 15

Saturday, April 14

  • After you’re done running and hanging out with artsy intellectuals at the Chase, support Campbell House at our Magical Spring Thing fundraiser at the Magnificent Mahler Ballroom.

Happy Friday Eve, and be sure to send an email to shelley [at] campbellhousemuseum [dot] org if you have a special soiree for us to feature in our next Campbell Contemporaries installment in two weeks.

CHM Happenings this Week

We’re having a busy few days here at Robert and Virginia’s house.  Not only are we getting the place jazzed up for the upcoming holidays, but we’ve been out and about to promote the Urban Museum Collaborative, a grant project funded by the Missouri Humanities Council.  Through the UMC, we have teamed up with The Griot Museum of Black History and Culture and the Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum to create multidisciplinary educational materials that combine the narratives of all three museums.  The curricula is geared towards learners of all ages — young children, teens and adults — so everyone can benefit from the work we’ve done.  This program is so special because if your school or senior group can’t make it to the museums, we can bring a bit of it to you.  The website (www.urbanmuseumcollaborative.org) is set to be launched by the end of this month, and it contains stories, pictures and activities for all three museums.  Each museum also has a traveling trunk so a series of hands-on objects can come to you.

We’ll share more of this exciting project in the next few weeks.  This Saturday (10/23/10), Campbell House Executive Director Andy Hahn will be presenting at a roundtable discussion along with Lois Conley of the Griot, Barb Faupel of the Eugene Field House, and Project Director Barbara Decker-Franklin at the Memory Symposium at Fontbonne University.

Of course, if you’re looking for something to do Friday night, we’re hosting our first-ever nighttime tour at CHM tomorrow, October 22nd starting at 7:00.  The house will be staffed with our awesome docents and you can take a self-guided tour through the house, gardens and carriage house.  (As is de rigueur for us, light refreshments will be served.  We like to eat at Campbell House.)   This is a terrific opportunity because experiencing the house at night is completely different than being here during the day.  $5 admission for the public, free admission for CHM members.  Please come out and join us!

If you have questions about tomorrow’s tour or the Urban Museum Collaborative, please call us at 314/421-0325.
