I actually wasn’t able to visit this exhibit! I had class and had hoped that it would be here longer than a day as I was looking forward to it. I hope it comes back!

I was so pleased to hear that there was an art history lecture I could attend after work. We don't always get to spend time doing the things we love, so when someone goes out of their way to make it available for us, I really appreciate it.
