Welcome to this week's Creativity Crate.
Today, we invite you to reflect with these  three, feel-good questions. With questions, we not only reveal our curiosities to others, but also invite others to express their feelings, wishes and dreams; showing that we’re more alike than we are different and showing a genuine interest in and respect for our lives.
Responses and answers are 100% anonymous, so you may be as honest as you wish to be.
Submit a link to one of your most favorite recipes so that we can compile and send a Creativity Crate Cookbook! Whether it's a side, dessert or a soup, we'd love for you to share your most delicious dish with us.
Exhibits July 10 - August 20  In an attempt to process the multilayered issues facing our society and culture, this month kicks off with a special exhibition in which artists interpret and respond to this extended moment in time.
Gallery and gift shop hours, starting July 10:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday • 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturdays • 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
or by appointment by contacting  exhibitions@artinlee.org
Tuesdays, July 14, July 28 and August 11 • These behind-the-scenes looks offer unique insight into each artists’ inspiration, process and the context behind the work. Be part of the conversation, express your thoughts and ideas or simply sit back and enjoy the discussion of what art means to us as individuals and as a society.
Applications are now open. We are honored to announce  The Arts are Vital Grant, an emergency relief program for Lee County’s arts organizations and individual artists formed in partnership with the Meisenberg Family Trust and the Alliance for the Arts to ensure the impact of the arts is not lost during a time when we need it most.
Thursday, July 16 • Now is your time to shine brighter than the star you wish upon! Join us for a night of theme park and Disney virtual trivia! Plus, prizes are up for grabs. Stay cozy (or dress up – costumes encouraged), make your favorite snacks and study up for an evening of fun and challenging questions and prove that you just can’t wait to be King (or Queen) of trivia!
Thursday, July 23  • Belly up to the brush bar and paint along virtually with creative genius David Acevedo! For one night only, enjoy an evening of creating and clinking while wearing your comfy pants! David will take you through the steps to create your one of a kind rooster masterpiece to fill that empty wall space you’ve been staring at.
Pour a drink, grab a snack and settle in for an exciting night of sipping and swirling with your friends from the Alliance!
Each and every Saturday  Fresh air and fresh produce make Saturday mornings worth rising for! Our weekly, onsite GreenMarket returns for in-person shopping on Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. We’re excited to welcome back 20 vendors – and of course, you!
