On Friday, March 4, the South Bend Museum of Art and seven University colleges and schools hosted a Carnival gallery night for graduate and professional students, and associated faculty and staff. Over 500 students and their guests enjoyed art, refreshments, and entertainment at the downtown museum.
In addition to the museum’s permanent collection—featuring the work of historical Indiana artists and significant contemporary regional artists—of particular interest to the Law School community was a special exhibition of Dwight King’s work in the Jerome J. Crowley Community Gallery, Tales in Wood: Works by Dwight King, and Objects from the Collection of Michael Kelly and Robert Hohl. Dwight King is a University of Notre Dame Law librarian and Robert Hohl is a librarian at Saint Mary’s College.
The evening featured a drawing for door prizes—won by several fortunate students. Donations included prizes from: Club Noma, South Bend Chocolate Company, Trios, Chicory Cafe, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center tickets (Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Friday, March 26), the South Bend Symphony Orchestra tickets (Tribute to the Beatles, Friday, March 26), and Southold Dance Theater tickets (Giselle, April 29 or 30).
Downtown South Bend offers a lively cultural experience on First Friday nights — students used the museum event to launch their own exploration of the central city.
