What some WASM members did the last week of May 2018.

Free workshop at the MMFA on Thursday, May 31: Cathy Keays, Mary Lennon, and Deirdre Potash made "fan-zines".

Art Tour of the Glen on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. Guides in red, Marsha Hunter and Joanne Trempe, took us on a wonderful tour of most of the 1% art (% of cost of building the Glen dedicated to art), plus quite a number of other works such as some originals by Picasso, some Matisse reproductions as well as originals by some well known Montreal artists (Shelley Miller), some works from the old hospitals like the statue of Queen Victoria, some works by the staff and volunteers, as well as many artifacts. The tour went from 2 to 3:45pm.
