Talk to Blathers Twice if Necessary

If you've met the requirements, but Blathers doesn't mention art when you talk to him the first time just speak to him again. After you do, you'll be able to donate art to him.

Isabelle Mentions a Suspicious Visitor

In her daily broadcast, Isabelle will announce that a "suspicious character" is visiting the island.

When you see this announcement, Redd will be standing somewhere on your island. You won't be able to enter his boat until you talk to him!

If you donate 60 items to the museum before the Town Hall is built, and there'll be a personal announcement from Tom Nook regarding the arrival of a certain shady character!
