Have you ever been to the Heard Museum? There are thousands of items on display there.

Marcus Monenerkit, Director of Community Engagement for the Heard Museum, had an interest in different cultures and diversity. “My dad traveled a lot and sent us postcards. When I got older, I still had the love. My father was a Comanche and my mother kept me connected with my father’s side. My grandmother spoke fluent Comanche.” Monenerkit started working at the Heard Museum in 1998.

 Colorful, splash of color, vibrant, fun, joyful and interesting! These are the words I am using to describe the Crayon Experience in Chandler.

When I first walked in the big door, there was a lot of color. It reminded me of a rainbow, only a splash of color. When I arrived at the experience I saw a machine that wrapped a custom crayon. The employees gave me coins and I was able to put it in the machine. The screen allowed me to put a message on the wrapper. Another station helped put on the custom wrapper.
