Malesha Taylor, founder of museSalon Collaborative will host a salon series for artists and arts lovers alike. Each salon will include open discussion by local artists and arts organizations.

The salon will also include an Idea Session (idea and project brainstorming taken from the format of the "Idea Party"), and attendees will be able to sign-up on a bartering request list. Any attendees who wish to present their project for the Idea Session should email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Only 5 presenters will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis.
