The Museum Club meets on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the Museum's main lobby during the academic year. The first meeting of the spring semester will be on January 28.
We are a group of students who share a common interest in and appreciation for museums and art and aim to promote student awareness of the Johnson Museum's vast collections, exhibitions, and resources by organizing and hosting programs and special events that give students the opportunity to visit the Museum during informal and social settings.
We present events "For Students Only" every semester featuring live music, student performances, art activities, scavenger hunts, food, and, of course, art! Our evening events create a social environment in which students can explore the Museum at their own leisure after hours. We also collaborate with other student groups on campus to host events featuring music, poetry, and other performing arts.
The annual Student Arts Showcase welcomes the many artistic talents of Cornell students—visual and performing. Gallery space is devoted to student art of any medium during the spring semester, and a reception features student performers, as individuals and in groups, including singers, dancers, poets, comedians, and more.
The 2014 Student Arts Showcase is a juried exhibition on view February 21 to March 2, with an opening reception funded in part by a grant from the Cornell Council for the Arts. Submissions in the theme of "art and the environment" are being accepted through February 4. Click here for guidelines and a submission form.
