Member Spotlight: The Galvin Family
Meet this month’s Member Spotlight! We’re featuring Lorraine Galvin and her family of five, including her husband, Drew, and three children, Warren, Vincent and Ingrid. The Galvin family loves art and feel the happiest when they are creating art together!
Tell us about you and your family!
Lorraine: I have been teaching art at Silver Gate Elementary in Point Loma for the past 5 years. My family and I have been members of the Museum on and off since 2013.
What brought you to the Museum?
L: We love museums and we love art, so The New Children’s Museum is the perfect spot for us! Everything about the Museum makes us happy. From the design of the building and the exhibits to the colors and the creativity that we experience when we are there, our minds and hearts are filled with inspiration.
What is your family’s favorite Museum experience?
L: Wes Bruce’s The Wonder Sound has us mesmerized each time we go. The design, the invention, the paintings, the art: they delight us every time and never cease to disappoint.
Has your family used any of our online creative resources or art kits? If so, what’s been your favorite and why?
L: YES! We have purchased many kits and supplies from the Museum Store. I love all OOLY and Kid Made Modern. The mini Buddha board is a must for all kids! We also bought some plastic animal puppets that have provided hours of laughter and entertainment.
