Turning Points: Rose Art Museum Honors Michael Rush

A symposium at the Rose to honor Michael Rush and discuss the future of the museum. Details:

Rose Art Museum
May 12, 2009, 2:00-4:30 p.m.

The Rose Art Museum currently faces one of the most extraordinary, and puzzling, moments in its history. After months of uncertainty over the fate of the Museum itself, the Brandeis University administration has declared that the Museum will stay open as a public art museum. However, the fate of the collection and the curatorial and educational missions of the museum remain unclear. We gather to celebrate and reflect upon the extraordinary accomplishments of the Rose Art Museum team under the leadership of Michael Rush, including a series of distinguished exhibitions, public programs, and publications. We also gather to discuss the future of the Museum; how can we work together to honor and carry on the remarkable legacies associated with this remarkable, precious institution?
