Spring/Spring Intern Update #2 by Jamie and Angela

Spring Intern Update #2 by Jamie and Angela

            Hello!  Welcome to our second blog post.  One of this week’s highlights includes rehearsing through a dinosaur sculpture tour in preparation for our kickoff dinosaur sculpture party next week.  As a reminder, Downtown Special Services District has 40 beautifully decorated dinosaur sculptures scattered in downtown Stamford this year, and 29 of these have been woven into an exciting 10 minute tour given by us. The office just received the printed copies of the “Dinosaurs Rule!” which features pictures of all the dinosaurs out around Stamford. There are also biographies about all the artists! We encourage you to go out and look for all dinosaurs – they are awesome. Angela’s favorite is Fluorescent Brachiosaurus by Valeska Dudley – it is at 1010 Washington Boulevard. Jamie’s favorite is Dine-A-Saur by Nina Bentley – it is outside of the Stamford Town Center.

 Angela and Jamie also continued to prepare for Alive @ Five and Jazz-Up July. Angela spent a lot of time assembling season passes and counting tickets. We are both so excited for the summer to start so these two concert series to begin! Jamie also spent a lot of time preparing for ARTWALK, creating a book that showcases all the different artists. ARTWALK is on June 26 and June 27 and is jam packed with fun events! Make sure to add ARTWALK, Alive @ Five, and Jazz-Up July to your summer calendar.
            Angela and Jamie also ventured down to the mailroom a few times this week. By doing so, we got more acquainted with our surroundings in Landmark Square. On the way back one day, we decided to take an overpass that connects Building 1 and the Movie Theater. It overlooks the entire square! We decided it was a great photo opportunity and took jumping photos.
