Welcome back to the Terrace and the McMullen Museum! As editors and co-chairs of the Publications Committee here at the McMullen, we wanted to welcome you back to your museum officially, whether that be in-person or remotely. The last few months have been overwhelming and have taken some getting used to, but we are happy to be connected again. We have welcomed both new and returning students to our Student Ambassador program for the 2020-2021 school year. Working both inside the museum and remotely, these students will continue to keep working within their committees and with the broader BC community to help facilitate bringing the museum to you during this strange and unprecedented moment in history.
Even though many museum operations and events look different this year, the McMullen remains open to the BC community and will continue to host virtual events throughout the year. The museum is open this semester, by appointment only, to the BC community. Since the exhibition on display in the Spring was only available for about two months before the museum closed, the museum decided to keep the exhibition, Indian Ocean Current: Six Artistic Narratives, open for this semester. If you are interested in viewing the exhibit, the best way to schedule an appointment is by contacting Rachel Chamberlain at firstname.lastname@example.org. The museum also remains a study space on campus. If you are interested in using the museum study spaces, you can also email Rachel about setting up a time slot for studying.
All of our programs for this semester will take place virtually. Some of the upcoming events we have planned include weekly docent tours at 3:00 PM every Friday, an Art History and Film colloquium on September 21, and a publication highlight on Ming Era architecture on September 29, to name a few for the rest of September.
