Friday Photos: Oh, the places we’ve been!

With the recent introduction of our DMA Dashboard, we’ve been keeping a careful eye on the mileage of our Go van Gogh van, which has made for some fun stats tracking.

So far, our outreach this school year has taken us 1,300 miles—enough for a trip from the Museum to Washington D.C.!  Below are a few other fun facts about our outreach destinations and the van trips we’ve taken this year.

  • Destination closest to home:  Ben Milam Elementary, a mere 2.6 miles away—soo close we could almost bike there.
  • Farthest afield: Brentfield Elementary, a 63.4 mile round-trip!
  • All the usual places:  L.K. Hall Elementary, Ronald McNair Elementary, and Thomas Tolbert Elementary are in our van’s GPS frequently—we’ve visited each at least five times.
  • Home(s) away from home:  William Anderson Elementary and Zion Lutheran School are our homes away from home.   We’ve made ten trips to each for a whopping one-fifth of our total mileage!

Our next van excursion will be tomorrow, Saturday March 23.  The Go van Gogh team will be at Firewheel Town Center in Garland, to provide art-making activities at Kidsfest, from 11:00am-3:00pm. We hope you’ll make the trip and join us there!
