Have you stopped and taken a look at people around you lately? There’s usually a cell phone in hand, or somebody is texting away. In today’s day and age staying connected is the norm, whether it is keeping in contact with friends on facebook , or passing information on with the 140-character tweeting phenomena, or plainly surfing the Web.
This past week, the Newark Museum unveiled its new-and FREE-WIFI connection in the Engelhard Court, and the IT department is busy hooking up the connection in the Dreyfuss Memorial Garden.
Just imagine taking a lunch break and listening to Jazz in the Garden, while emailing a friend about the concert? (Check out the dates and performers for this year’s 2010 Jazz in the Garden.)
Having a wireless connection is beneficial for both visitors and staff. A unique place to have a business lunch meeting could be in the Engelhard Court. For college students, grab a cup of coffee and study in either the garden or court. Having another place to study or work could spur on creativity. With its affordable cafe prices and inspiring works of art, the Museum setting beats any dorm or conference room any day.
The Museum is open Wednesday through Friday, noon to 5 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday, 10 am to 5pm. The cafe is open from 12 pm to 3 pm. So, what to do on Monday and Tuesday? Hm, just schedule the meeting for Wednesday, and definitely take advantage of a library. Founder John Cotton Dana would also appreciate that. See you in Engelhard Court with laptops in hand!
