    apART: Virtual Programming for Our Pandemic Time

    Due to COVID-19 pandemic, and in an effort to support the health of our campus community and the public, The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery will be closed during the 2020–2021 academic year (September–May). Instead, we invite you to participate in apART, a series of virtual visual arts programming such as online exhibitions and events, video tours of the fine art collection and more! We invite you to connect here until the gallery reopens.
