This is an excellent chance to explore our two new exhibits, TALES FROM THE VAULT: 40 YEARS/40 STORIES and FOUNDING COLLECTIONS: 1977-1987!

This FREE event will also feature:

  • A catered reception and cash bar
  • Games and activities 
  • A raffle to support the new Lucy Shelton Caswell Research Award
  • Photo opportunities
  • Behind-the-scenes archive tours
  • A curators’ tour at 5 pm with Jenny Robb, Caitlin McGurk, and Lucy Caswell
  • Cake!

This event is made possible through generous support from Eileen & Lynn Theis. We hope you will celebrate with us on May 1st!
