Janice Mason Art Museum’s current exhibit on modern Bhutanese art has led to some very high atttendence and the gift shop’s best month ever, Director Paula Lisowsky reported at last week’s board of directors meeting.

She said that 800 people had visited the museum in May, which was helped by several field trips from the schools. She said a class of 130 fifth graders and 160 sixth graders had come to the exhibit. Lisowsky said that $500 in revenues is usually considered a good month for the museum’s gift shop, but that it had its best month in May with $1,599.

Lisowsky said that the museum would be hosting 20 different children’s art classes for the Jumpin’ July program, which includes a new pottery class. She said classes were filling up quickly and that registration cost $5. She said the museum would also be hosting a reception for the Kentucky Main Street Managers on June 27 when they are in town for their summer managers meeting. She said that when Cadiz Renaissance on Main Director Cindy Sholar reserved the museum, it wasn’t clear whether or not there would even be an open exhibit, but they were lucky that it turned out to be one of the best in the museum’s history.

For the building and grounds report, Paul Fourshee reported that the changes to the basement are going very well, which will be to their advantage for the Jumpin’ July program. He said that several high school football players had fulfilled their community service requirements by helping them to tear down one of the walls in order to make one of the rooms much larger.
