What’s Happening in April?

Regan Kelly
Education Assistant

As the Spring Semester comes to a close in the rush of turning in final projects and taking finals, we have plenty of events and activities at DOMA to help calm those nerves. Please join us on Fridays at 3:30 pm for Meditation in the Museum or stop by for 30 to 45 minute tours with docents at 2:30 pm on Saturdays to explore art and cultures from around the world. After each Saturday tour, there will also be an interpretive guide roaming around the galleries. To end the semester, Fractured Narratives: A Strategy to Engage will have a special “un-tour” with Alexander Jarman on April 24th during Final Friday.
