In this edition of the APN Wire:

July is almost here, and I wish I could say the 4th will bring freedom but it does not seem so.  Many of us wake up every day to new changes and it can get exhausting to keep constantly looking forward and planning for the future.  Thankfully, there are good changes and lots of people working together toward solutions.  One great example of positive change can be heard in my latest podcast with Meg Colbert and Derek Jones of the Art Service Workers Safety Coalition.  This newly formed group is a fantastic example of a silver lining in this dumpster fire of a year.  You can check out their site in the Resources section as well and learn how they are building consensus and mission towards industry standards that will keep all art pros safe.

Also, I am so sad this year because we are unable to have our annual Art Linx conference.  This is just about the time we would be getting the final touches together for another awesome networking day.  I have to say there are a lot of people finding ways to bring us events, and I have added a few in this edition.  Check out the events and films from the last venue of the Soul of a Nation exhibition, and don’t forget to add a little PRIDE in our summer…check out the Sacramento PRIDE Bluegrass festival.

This edition also has several articles that can update you on the news from museums around the country.  Some are true, and some are not…so make sure you know the story.  There is so much turmoil in our world we have to make sure the info is right.  We also have to make sure our comments are well thought out and contribute to a positive solution. There are some great examples of the positive and negative possibilities coming out of New York City this week.  I hope that this edition contributes positive value to your week.

Thanks for being a part of the APN community.  Be Well!
