Spring/Summer Intern Update #3 and final farewell to Jaime & Angela....

Blog Post #3
As the end of our internship approaches, we feel a great sense of satisfaction in all that we have accomplished.  During these three weeks, we mostly worked on the behind the scenes portion of many events, but yesterday, we finally saw all of our hard work in action!  On Wednesday, there was a dinosaur sculpture launch party. Artists and sponsors gathered in an upscale ballroom as they dined on fancy hors d’oeuvres and delicious pastries from Dimare’s.  Guests also had the opportunity to sign up for trolley or van tours around the downtown area and marvel at colorful dinosaurs!  We’ve been writing scripts for the tour and practicing our routes for the past few days, so Wednesday was like the live performance to our rehearsals.  We gave 2 comprehensive 30-minute tours, and we felt like we were really engaging and enthusiastic with the guests.  From the positive feedback, we definitely did an amazing job as tour guides!!

 On Thursday, we had the pleasure of giving more tours to first graders from Roxbury Elementary School. This was an exciting experience and a chance to get out of the office and enjoy the warm weather. The kids were so excited to see 19 dinosaurs on their own “personal” tours. They loved Officer Rex and Punk Rex! The kids were also so excited to learn more historical facts about actual dinosaurs. At each dino, the students had a booklet where they could write down what they liked about the dino. They also got a Dinosaurs Rule! Sticker to take home.
This week was definitely Dinosaur-centric, however, in the midst of all that, a ton of progress was made on ARTWALK. The brochure, schedule of events, and map were all able to be wrapped up.  In addition, significant progress has been made on the Artists Profile Book.
The dinosaurs will be out on the streets of Stamford Downtown through August, so make sure to get out and see them all! ARTWALK, the other event we frequently mention, is occurring June 26-27 and is free to the public. Get out on the streets and go see all the art – you won’t want to miss it! #stamforddowntown
