This past week was spring break at MICA, but that did not stop the Friends of Globe. Today we wrapped up a long, but exciting week of digging through 80 years of Globe production.

We went through wood type, cuts, posters, sketches, ruby liths, amber liths, digital films, and boxes of mystery.

We found amazing pieces of entertainment history and listened to good music along the way. Want to make the perfect Globe Pandora station? Combined The Temptations and Little Richard, thanks Carolyn!

A big thanks to everyone who made this week awesome! From Left to Right. Colin and Ariel, 2nd year graduate students at the Mt. Royal School. Carolyn, a senior at MICA.
