And get ready for more regular entries. We finally have our blog fixed and you can now access past entries through the list on the left. No longer will you get the frustrating "page not found" message. The archiving frequency has been changed to monthly, however it may change back to weekly as action starts to heat up. This should be the place you check for news. Updating the main site is a much more time-consuming enterprise, since we want to only present you with the most entertaining of graphics and stories. (But do look for a Museum Store soon!)

First and foremost in the news: OUR FIRST EXHIBIT WILL OPEN IN OCTOBER 2004! This will be the first in a series of mini exhibitions called "Inspired by Toys". The series will appear in various venues as we partner with other museums, libraries and galleries to highlight their programming through toy exhibits! We hope that these mini-exhibitions will give you a taste of all that we plan to bring you in the future in a dedicated environment.

For now, here are the facts:
"The Play of Light" will open in October 2004 at the Museum of Neon Art, 501 West Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015. Times and specific dates will be forthcoming, and if you would like to be on our mailing list (members are already on the list!) email us your address. MONA has been incredibly generous in allowing us to launch this first exhibition. It’s just another example of how innovative and creative this museum continues to be. MONA will also be opening not one but three exhibits at the same time! One of vintage beer signs will be just in time for Oktoberfest!

If you are a member of LATDA, you will be able to see all the shows for free!

In the mean time, stay tuned for more recent news. I promise to be more diligent about reporting our progress. (Your humble electro-scribe has just spent a crazed few months preparing to push her only child out of the nest and into the wilds of Rhode Island). And there are many things simmering in our creative soup!
