Young Artist Abby Metzner Creates at The Amazeum

How often do you see an aspiring graphic designer gain professional experience at the young age of 14? Although we had chosen a design for our 7th Birthday T-Shirt contest, we were so blown away by the talent of Abby Metzner that we knew we had to utilize her design skills in some way. After collaborating with our retail and marketing team, we came up with a solution. Abby came by and worked with the Amazeum’s very talented Production Artist Christine Pendry to work together in creating a sticker that represents the best qualities of the Scott Family Amazeum - authenticity, learning, and a little wacky fun!

Putting the Art in STEAM

Rarely a day goes by that someone doesn’t slowly walk into the Scott Family Amazeum, look up, down, and all around then ask: “Is this the art museum?”
