Graduate Student Happy Hour

What do you get when you add: Graduate Students + Henry Art Gallery + Big Time Brewing?

The happiest hour of graduate students leading graduate students around the Henry.

Thursday January 23rd from 4-7pm.

For this event the Henry called upon a team of graduate students to create activities based on their passions and research to share with their peers. So let’s see what’s on tap for the night.

Free Drinks & Food:

It is a Happy Hour after all.

Coat Check Confessionals:

A collaboration between our Student Henry Advisory Group (SHAG) and the Museology Program. Leave your coat and bag at the door. Then we give you the chance to share your wisdom to the next generation.

What I wish I would have known as an undergrad.

Responses will be featured in a project to be shown at our fall party for under graduate students.

Graduate student Michaela Petrovich will explore selected objects from the collection.
