Hosted by Nik Honeysett, former chair of the Media and Technology Network, representatives of the Future Energy Chicago team spent an evening of irreverence and celebration at the 25th Annual MUSE awards at this year’s AAM.  Shari Berman of EVD shared the event and the MUSE Gold Award with our partner in all things daring and bold, Kurt Haunfelner, Vice President of Exhibits and Collections at MSI Chicago, along with Abbey Palmer of Potion Design.
