Help the non-profit Bob Moog Foundation by buying merchandise online.
The Moogseum, located in Asheville, NC, has announced that it’s closing its doors…at least until the COVID-19 crisis passes. In the spirit of social distancing and “flattening the curve,” the Bob Moog Foundation’s executive director Michelle Moog-Koussa said, “We believe it is our moral imperative to protect our staff as well as our visitors and our community by temporarily closing the Moogseum to the public.”
Such a decision has serious financial implications, of course, but you can help. Although you can’t visit the Moogseum anytime soon, you can still purchase the souvenirs you’d buy if you were there. In fact, they’ve recently received some new merchandise that might be just what you’re looking for. Follow this link to the Bob Moog Foundation’s online store to see what’s new and place your order.
Some of the latest items include a vintage synth card game and Moog module postcards. The 2020 Minimoog 50th Anniversary Calendar is still available, too. My favorite, though, is the new Imoogination poster, which re-creates the cover art from Moog Music’s first company newsletter in 1976. Check it out, get some cool stuff, and help support this worthy non-profit organization at the same time.
