Each spring, high school students from the Museum Ambassadors program facilitate a Family and Community Day for the public. Hailing from all corners of the Cleveland area, these 10th-12th graders create projects summarizing their experiences at the museum during the past school year. Prior to the April 29th Community Day, students met with museum staff, planned an activity for visitors, and marketed the event in their schools and communities. This year more than 800 visitors participated.
Chances are that if you have been to the museum in the last 30 years you have intersected the work of Mel Horvath. Horvath is one of the men behind all the brochures, flyers, and programs. He also runs the museum copy center.
