Museum for Lunch

The Nickle Arts Museum continues its successful program of short lectures exploring the broad range of subjects pertinent to museums and cultural heritage. Be sure to join us for this fascinating series.

Museum for Lunch features a diversity of lecturers, including artists, musicians, curators, museum professionals, and historians. The program is offering an opportunity for students, professionals, and anyone that is interested to be guest speakers in the upcoming Fall/Winter semester schedule. Although topics that deal with, or link to, art, museology, archaeology, history, and aesthetics are ideal, we do welcome others, but we strongly encourage topics that have a relevant informing or educating component.

For more information, or if you have a lecture you would like to present, please contact Robin Jaska from the Nickle Arts Museum at 220-7234.

October 20: Dr. Richard Levy
October 27: Ainsley Davidson & James Sloane
