Thanks to PSPA support, the Addison Community Ambassadors annual Night at the Addison student event was a huge success, with over 180 students attending. Events included: a scavenger hunt encouraging exploration of the galleries and close looking at artworks, art making activities inspired by themes from the current exhibitions, musicians in the galleries, and more!
