Art in Small Bites: A WashU Staff Event

May 1, 2020
12 pm

WashU staff are invited to take time out from their busy days to discover the University’s very own art museum. In this special program, attendees have the chance to choose an artwork to explore. We’ll share images here of three artworks currently on view, and WashU staff will be able to vote on the work they most want to learn about. On May 1, join Museum educators for a dynamic discussion about the art and a chance to explore the recently expanded Museum.

Attendees will receive a 20% discount at the Museum Coffee Bar to purchase a “small bite.”
