CANCELLED Art in Small Bites: A WashU Staff Event

May 18, 2020
1:30 pm and 2:30 pm

As part of WashU's 2020 Staff Day, University staff are invited to discover the University’s very own art museum. In this special program, attendees have the opportunity to choose an artwork to explore. We’ll share images here of three artworks currently on view, and staff will be able to vote on the work they most want to learn about. On May 18, join Museum educators for a dynamic discussion about the art and a chance to explore the recently expanded Museum. Limit 15 participants for each session.

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