Open Door at the Arthur Ross Gallery & the Penn Museum

October 30, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

Open Door offers unique behind-the-scenes tours at Philadelphia’s most intriguing cultural sites.

Join us for two special tours at the University of Pennsylvania. We will start at the Arthur Ross Gallery to see William Kentridge: Universal Archive, a series of 79 linocuts printed onto pages from dictionaries and encyclopedias.

Following, we will tour the new Middle East Galleries at the Penn Museum. The collection features objects from 10,000 years of human history and are the first in a series of transformative gallery renovations taking place at the Penn Museum over the next several years.

This is a free event, however, space is limited and RSVP is required. RSVP to Mikaela Hawk at mhawk@printcenter.org.
