Come color and eat cookies with the Society of Art Librarianship Students at their booth at IU’s First Thursdays festival! We will be selling baked goods, button packs and our zine!
The First Thursdays festival is a celebration of contemporary arts & humanities on the IU Bloomington campus. The festival is free and open to all members of the public, with performances and activities around the Showalter Arts Plaza.
SALS members teamed up the BGSA (Black Graduate Student Association) for a behind-the-scenes look at the Indiana University’s Art Museum.
We met with Anita Bracalente, the museum’s Registrar, to see and discuss the inner workings of the museum. Anita is a part of the Collections Management team – she is responsible for implementing policies and procedures that relate to caring for collections of the IUAM. Anita was able to answer all of our questions about art storage, accessioning, conservation and the services that are available for students.
SALS + BGSA ended the tour in the viewing room where the IUAM had selected some special flat works for us to view.
