A Wednesday Word from the Director | Fast Times & Tour Guides

Dear Community,

This week’s word will be super quick. We are in the thick of practicing and planning for tomorrow’s Back to the Past Urban Art Architecture Tour kickoff event. I promise that next week’s word will be more in depth. 

I am so proud of the interns and the work that they have put into developing this tour for the community. Their growth as individuals and young professionals is truly inspiring and I hope that you are able to make it to the showings on tomorrow.

Stay tuned as we will continue to share more amazing intern related content throughout the rest of the week. Be sure to keep up with me and 540WMain on the official Facebook page and my personal facebook page. Social media is our lifeblood and we love seeing all your comments, likes, loves and shares.

Before I forget…

About Back to the Past Urban Architecture Tour
