We’re looking for help during the Out of the Box exhibition’s official opening on Friday, October 2nd! The event is tailgate-themed for Homecoming weekend and is free and open to the public from 3-7 pm. We’ll have hands-on art activities, tours of the newly-installed sculpture, awesome food available for purchase, and a lot more.
We’ll need people to help out at our photo-prop booth and to punch cards for our giveaway. (We’re raffling off a Yeti cooler!) Shifts will be about an hour long and a free t-shirt and koozie will be provided.
Join us tonight at 6 p.m. for Third Thursday Poetry with Adam Vines. Vine's series of ekphrastic works, "Out of Speech," explores themes as varied as exile, family, disease, desire and isolation through an array of twentieth- and twenty-first century painters, including Picasso, Hopper, Rothko, de Kooning, Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Artschwager. Visit the Museum Shop to purchase your copy of "Out of Speech." And don't forget that the Museum Café opens at 5 p.m. for drinks and appetizers. ... See MoreSee Less
