IU Art Museum re-opens in time to celebrate 70th anniversary, Thursday Coffeehouse Nights
The IU Art Museum continues the celebration of its 70th anniversary -- and re-opening after a summer of repairs and renovations -- with a new season of Thursday Coffeehouse Nights.
On the first three Thursday nights in September (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.), the museum will offer a fusion of art and music, with coffee samples at Angles Café and sweet treats compliments of Bloomingfoods in the museum's Thomas T. Solley Atrium.
One of the museum's three permanent galleries will be featured on each of the Coffeehouse Nights. Attendees can see art from a new perspective and browse the museum's galleries while enjoying a related musical performance. Participants in a scavenger hunt can receive prizes from the museum and the Ryder Film Series.
All three evenings are free and open to the public.
