Homecoming Weekend Event: Friends of the Mead Celebration
Everyone is welcome to this annual celebration for the Friends of the Mead Art Museum. The 2012 event reprises a modern-day campus tradition: a student-organized Evening at the Mead, in which volunteer student docents present an informal tour of collection highlights and an Amherst a cappella group responds to each artwork by performing a thematically related song. The cabaret-style festivities conclude with a wine and cheese reception, offering a chance to mix and mingle while perusing the Fairest College’s world-class art collection. New Friends’ memberships are available at the door with donations in any amount.
