American Adventure

Do you have what it takes to survive? Brave the maze and take a step back into history to find out. In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of Virginia and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement. Little did they know that less than half of them would survive the year in this new wilderness. Minotaur Mazes' American Adventure takes visitors on an immersive, educational role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original Jamestown colonists. Sound easy? Think again. Only 38 of the 104 settlers survived. But don't worry - you're not tied to their destiny. You can beat the odds and determine your fate - it all depends on the choices you make...and a bit of luck. Blending historical accuracy and the complexities of real life and death decisions, American Adventure delivers a truly unique and effective learning experience. Visitors choose a unique Life Chart based on one of the original Jamestown colonists. Each chart features an… Monday, September 1, 2014, 9:00 AM. Sloan Museum 1221 E.

American Adventure

Do you have what it takes to survive? Brave the maze and take a step back into history to find out. In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of Virginia and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement. Little did they know that less than half of them would survive the year in this new wilderness. Minotaur Mazes' American Adventure takes visitors on an immersive, educational role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original Jamestown colonists. Sound easy? Think again. Only 38 of the 104 settlers survived. But don't worry - you're not tied to their destiny. You can beat the odds and determine your fate - it all depends on the choices you make...and a bit of luck. Blending historical accuracy and the complexities of real life and death decisions, American Adventure delivers a truly unique and effective learning experience. Visitors choose a unique Life Chart based on one of the original Jamestown colonists. Each chart features an… Thursday, September 4, 2014, 9:00 AM. Sloan Museum 1221 E.

Do you have what it takes to survive? Brave the maze and take a step back into history to find out. In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of Virginia and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement.

Vision Quest: Tuesday Teas

Join us for tea and conversation every Tuesday through the month of October. Each tea features a guest artist who will share folk and outsider art collections, stories, music and travel experiences. Creative 360 has created an innovative program to educate and stimulate discussion about art - specifically what determines art to be folk, outsider, visionary instead of fine art. 30 events are scheduled for September 12 through October 30 at Creative 360 where an invitational art exhibition of folk and outsider art will be on display. Tuesday, September 9, 2014, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM. Creative 360 1517 Bayliss Street, Midland MI 48640. For more info visit www.becreative360.org.
