Did you know that Target sponsors arts programs that bring the arts to schools and help to make it affordable for youth and families to participate in cultural experiences. One such example is Target Family Day at art museums around the country? Programs that make the arts accessible to school children are of particular interest to them. It appears that Teacher's Discovery Traveling Exhibits is exactly the kind of arts in the schools program that they are funding. Target has been a very generous sponsor for our exhibits for the last two years now and they are definitely continuing with their support with most grants averaging between $1,000 to $3,000. I've heard from 2 teachers and 1 librarian within the last 3 days who've been awarded a combined $5,000 for Traveling Exhibits. The notifications are already being sent out when our grant writers were told that they'd have to wait until Sept. 30, 2009. With all of that being said:

Please keep in mind that the deadline has passed for the 2009-2010 school year and they will be accepting new applications again after March 1, 2010. It's never to early to Aspire to Inspire.
- Lisa M. ~ Your Traveling Exhibits Coordinator
- Hello and welcome to Traveling Exhibits Inspiration Ave. My name is Lisa and I'm the Exhibits Coordinator for Teacher's Discovery. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work with teachers and librarians throughout the United States in giving the gift of awe, inspiration and a museum experience to their students and patrons. Working with you has been so rewarding for me and I am moved and inspired daily with the heartfelt experiences that have been shared with me from so many who have hosted a Traveling Exhibit(s). When an educator is inspired it's contagious and therefore their students are inspired too. I will do my best always, to assist you in giving the best exhibition that will enrich the lives of all who are witness to our Spectacular Exhibits. With this blog I will share pictures,comments, ideas and activities that have been shared with me and use it as a tool for you to inspire your peers.
