Campus Connections

Lunch & tour program builds new art audiences

Posted by Kimberly Singer July 22, 2010

The Museum's education department recently developed a new program to help entice Washington University faculty and staff to take advantage of the quiet summer months and visit the Kemper Art Museum with a special lunch and tour program. Responses came from entities across campus, from the staff from the Career Center and the Gephart Institute to a group from the Summer Scholars Program and even individuals from the engineering and occupational therapy departments. During lunch—catered by Bon Appétit—these University staff members enjoyed a presentation about the Museum's history, as well as current and upcoming exhibitions and related offerings, and then ventured into the galleries to experience and discuss the art on view.

Given the great success of this initiative the Museum is likely to continue to offer this opportunity to interested parties; if you'd like to organize a lunch and tour program this fall please contact the education department at or 314.935.7918.
