  2. Virtual Museum Picks!

    OK, it’s kind of boring right now, being bound by the four walls around us. But we can still explore the world! Thanks to Google Art & Culture and an international cadre of museums, we can explore and get inspired by some of the world’s best artists and creatives in a new way. See Andy Warhol at the Tate Modern or get to know Roald Dahl a bit better – you can even make your own chocolate wrapper ball in homage to one of his pastimes.
