Join Friends for an afternoon of conversation with three artists from our community about what inspires them. We start at the University Museum with a moderated panel discussion. Each artist on the panel explored the Museum’s vault and selected inspiring artwork to share. The afternoon continues with intimate visits to the artists’ studios. We finish with an early summer garden party at Rowan Oak.

Participants are encouraged to participate in any or all of the three activities.
