A free chance for folks of all ages to do some creating this week, brought to you by the Superior Public Library ...

College is back in session this week and that's a reminder that there are new student shows up at the Tweed Museum of Art every week.

Instead of blowing through a gallery, sparing only a few seconds for each work, Annie recommends picking a piece you like, setting a timer for two minutes, and then just looking at it carefully.
