From 10 am until 3 pm on Saturday, September 22, the Museum of the Waxhaws hosted ART@MUSEUM.  This event, organized by Shannon Scott, the volunteer gardener at the Museum, brought kids and crafters together for community wide fun.  Targeted towards children ages 5 to 15, ART@MUSEUM was hosted across the grounds of the Museum with 10 arts and crafts venues featuring artists such as Queen Bee City Farm painting bee hives, other artists working with weaving with natural products, painting with fruits and vegetables, and many more.  Special thanks to sponsors: Weddington Physical Therapy and Wellness, Harris Teeter at Weddington Corners, Succession Solutions, Inc, Winthrop University, South Main BBQ, Kona Ice, and Samantha Peppard who cleaned out her art closet for ART@MUSEUM.
