At the reception, mingle with the art faculty and learn what has inspired their work.

Join Giertz Gallery for Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on Saturday, Sept. 21, from noon to 2 p.m. Come celebrate the creative potential in all of us by making butterfly and insect-themed wearable art with Parkland faculty and students!
