Member Day 2012 a Fun Event
The Birmingham Museum of Art hosted an activity at the Birmingham Public Library Central Branch location. The full-day event aims to thank participating organizations' members for their support and patronage, while hopefully generating interest from those who don't normally experience their venue.
Shontay Wilson said her twin four-year-old girls claimed, "This place is fun!"
Sandi Lee, who acted as BPL's representative with the Membership Alliance, explained that the event is a sort of outreach for the different organizations to share other groups with their members.
"It gives people that are members the opportunity to visit and see what other places have to offer and see if they want to be a member there as well," said Lee.
Mallory Gibson, Membership Director for the Birmingham Museum of Art, praised the long-standing relationship between BPL and her organization.
"What's great about this experience is that you get to show people what they normally won't see or wouldn't experience. It's a snapshot of what's great in Birmingham all in one day," said Gibson.
The Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham and 18 local groups participated in the annual event.
