Night at the Museum

Mark your calendar for the next Northwestern Night at the Art Institute on Thursday, February 26! 

All Northwestern students, faculty, and staff (with a valid Wildcard) and as many guests as they like are welcome with free admission to the Art Institute after 5:00 PM when they enter at the Modern Wing (north side entrance on Monroe St.) of the museum.

In addition to museum access, visitors for the event can join tours of the museum's highlights, a tour of French Art (conducted in French), and a tour of works focused on social justice and equality--all led by Art Institute guides.

There will also be a number of student docents from Northwestern's Block Museum spread out in various galleries answering questions and providing information about specific works.

Visitors from the Evanston campus can take advantage of a free round-trip shuttle service. Buses will leave Emerson St. near Sheridan Road by 4:30 PM or earlier if they fill up, drop off at the Art Institute, and then return shortly after museum closing time.

Visitors will also receive member discounts in the gift shop and cafe, and there is a group photo scheduled to cap off the night as a thank you to Shirley Welsh Ryan (WCAS61) who fully supports the partnership between Northwestern and the Art Institute--allowing for Northwestern Nights and free access to the museum for all undergraduates year-round.

All students who register to attend Northwestern Night at the Art Institute should RSVP for the event on Wildcat Connection for a chance to win a $50 museum gift shop gift card plus some other prizes! Must attend the event to win. Winner must be an undergraduate or graduate student at Northwestern and will be notified by josephlattal2016@u.northwestern email on February 25.
