An artful start to date night

University Museums staff are hosting a series of free Date Night events this fall to introduce more people, outside of the work day, to three of its facilities: Christian Petersen Art Museum in Morrill Hall, Brunnier Art Museum in the Scheman Building and the Farm House Museum on central campus. Date nights will be held on Fridays (5-7 p.m.) Sept. 23, Oct. 21 and Nov. 11. Staff have designed them as fun, casual, come-and-go events.

With a significant other or even a small group of friends, participants enjoy refreshments and planned activities at their own pace, surrounded by the art pieces in the current exhibition. Registration is encouraged but not required.

At the first date night next week in the Christian Petersen museum, couples or groups can try activity stations where they draw each other, form figures out of craft wire and take photos together posing like works of art.
