National Museum Day
In conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Art and Archaeology will host its annual National Museum Day on Saturday, September 26, from 1:00–3:00pm at Mizzou North. This year’s participants include characters like Thomas Hart Benton interpreting Museum objects, the Museum of Civilization exhibition (in connection with Daniel Boone Regional Library’s One Read program), Folk Arts, the Museum of Anthropology, Classical Studies, the State Historical Society of Missouri, the Mizzou Botanic Garden, and the MU Broader Impacts Network. Some special activities include a video and a tea ceremony by the Confucius Institute in their Tea Room, a reprise of Ellis Library Special Collection’s popular calligraphy workshop, Campus Writing Program activities focusing on Museum objects, and even a museum-wide Textile and Apparel Management scavenger hunt.
