What's in the Box? Uncrate 2020

Posted on January 6, 2020 at 10:00 AM by Betsy Grabinski

A small group of Museums staff and supporters gathered on December 31 for a behind-the-scenes event to uncrate works of art by Karen LaMonte, which will be on display during the upcoming Contemplate Japan exhibition at the Brunnier Art Museum. The exhibition will open January 15.
