One of the hidden perks of being an AmeriCorps member is being privy to some pretty sweet discounts. We had a panel of AmeriAlum come and speak at one of our past Friday meetings and one of the alum works with a children's art museum down in Davie (about 45 minutes south of Boynton). The museum that she works with was having an event that included open bar, food vendors, and a chance to see the museum in a different light. She was able to get us in to the event for free, so of course had to take advantage of that!
Close to 20 of our members ended up going down for this event and we had a great time! The food was magnificent, the drinks hit the spot, and the art was really cool! The definite highlight of the night was the recycled jungle. This exhibit was pretty much what it sounds like: an entire jungle scene created out of recyclable materials. Trees were made out of plastic rakes. Animals were crafted out of rubber and wood. Lakes shimmered as light bounced off the back of CD's. It was super impressive!
