Daily Brief

July 1, 2021

Students make their mark on an innovative exhibit that invites participants to "make, see, do, feel, play, chill and reflect," at Goggleworks, Reading, Pa.

KU PROFESSOR, STUDENTS DESIGN HANDS-ON EXHIBIT
An innovative exhibit that invites participants to "make, see, do, feel, play, chill and reflect" while exploring the topics of creativity, addiction and mental health is open this summer at The Goggleworks, Reading, Pennsylvania. The exhibit was designed and built by communication design associate professor Ann Lemon, students and alumni. Visitors can add to a collaborative mural, write a "community bucket list," make a zoetrope animation and more. The gallery is adjacent to one displaying the intensely colorful and emotional artwork of Amos Lemon Burkhart, a gifted local artist who suffered from mental illness and died in a drug-and-alcohol-related drowning at the age of 19.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Our heatwave comes to an end today with more clouds than sunshine and fairly widespread chances for showers and thunderstorms, any of which could produce heavy rain and potential flash flooding in spots. It will still be very humid and uncomfortable for another day, but with temperatures only in the low to mid-80s, today will feel better.
