Thank you so much to everyone who came out to participate with us on PAFA’s STAMP Day! It was a blast! Great music and fun crafts like button making, foam printing, and creating beautiful flowers made the afternoon special.  Students from all over the city came, met, and shared ideas and sandwiches. I always find STAMP Days are a place to find out  just as much about the museum as about what other teens are getting into!

Stay tuned to the STAMP blog and our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for info on the next STAMP Day at the National Museum of Jewish American History on Sunday March 23! Click here to RSVP. It’s FREE with your STAMP Pass!

One thing to catch in the next two weeks at PAFA is the Works on Paper Gallery (something I mentioned in (2 of my Favorite Exhibits). They had brought in a new collection, but it’s been there since January and it’s almost time for it to go. (It leaves March 30th!) The exhibit features recent gifts to PAFA’s collection. These pieces are both beautiful and thought-provoking. It is interesting to see a room of contemporary art in the Historical Building, when most times, contemporary and recent art is held next door in the Hamilton Building.  I suggest that you visit this exhibit before it leaves.

Check out Beyond the Paint as well before you leave!
