PRAM’s second Ask Me Anything via the Public Relations & Marketing Community on Museum Junction features Daniel Summers, Jr., marketing director at the Center for Puppetry Arts, fielding questions about his very recent marketing and communications efforts during the November opening of the museum in Atlanta, Georgia.
