Grand Opening Invitation: Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU
Date: April 6, 2018 Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Event Description Please join us for the Grand Opening Dedication Ceremony on Friday, April 6 (mom’s weekend) from noon to 1:00 p.m. President Kirk Schulz, architect Jim Olson, and patron Jordan Schnitzer will share their thoughts. Refreshments will be served in the Pavilion gallery and tours will be given every two hours beginning at 2:00 pm until closing. The new museum is located directly south of the CUB on Terrell Mall of the Pullman campus. In the six new galleries of the Crimson Cube, we will be hosting fiber constructions from Marie Watt, an interactive sound sculpture by Trimpin, ceramics by Jeffry Mitchell, video from the True Collection, and portraiture from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation. We will also feature works from the museum’s permanent collection titled Hearts: Selections from the Jim Dine Print Collection. We are delighted to host our featured artists’ works as our inaugural exhibitions and are confident that you will be inspired by both the art and the architecture you experience in the new space. In our former location within the Fine Arts Center, now known as the Collections & Learning Gallery, we look forward to hosting the Masters of Fine Arts Thesis exhibition, opening April 3. The reception for the MFA show is April 6, at 6:00 p.m. Please check our calendar for opening event times and locations. It is going to be a busy weekend.
