urlThis summer, Target has been sponsoring free summer museum days all over the United States.  Target has been advocating for art and education and is leading the way by making art available to anyone. Target is sponsoring 9 events in Chicago this summer. It will allow many to catch up on art.  And, since the entrance fee is waived, it would be a great idea to donate to the museums and or to the Target Foundation.  Here’s the list:
