This presentation will explore how drones are being used for everyday practical purposes and will perhaps dispel the stigma of drones as spying devices or tools of war. We will also feature Kalamazoo County's 4-H Youth Quadcopter (Drone) Racing Program, where kids build, program, pilot, and race their very own first-person-view (FPV) quadcopters. The program includes a demonstration of indoor quadcopters. Patrons may take this opportunity to visit the Museum's agricultural drone on display in the Innovation Gallery on the 2nd floor.

Exploring the Treasures of Refugees
December 16, 2018 (Third Sunday)
Photographer Jim Lommasson will speak about the power of art for social change and the evolution of the exhibit What We Carried: Fragments and Memories from Iraq and Syria. The traveling exhibit has had an impact on the numerous communities that have hosted it across the country in part because Lommasson often extends his process to supplement the main exhibit with additional pieces added from local refugees.
