Come March at the Museums!

All through the month of March, the Museum of Art and the other four museums here at Brigham Young University hosted a “March at the Museums!” This was something that brought a lot of attention to our students, their friends, family, and even faculty! It consisted of visiting each museum and solving a riddle from each to then receive a sticker! After you receive all five stickers, you get a water bottle from the Museum.
I joined a couple of my roommates on this adventure to all the Museums that BYU had to offer. We traveled together to each museum and enjoyed one’s company. It brought us a way to spend quality time together, and talk about things we never would have before, ART!
Maddie Rosenberg and McKenzie Griffeth said “adventuring to all the museums gave us the opportunity to look at art pieces we would have never seen before.” It showed them that art can come in many shapes, sizes, and the different ways art can be made. They were excited to see many of the art exhibitions that were placed in each museum, but they loved how many different ones that the MOA had to offer.
I enjoyed observing them admire art the way that I did. They asked questions about artists, art pieces, how frames are made and more. It joyed to me to know that March at the Museums gave people a way to connect with art and view art in ways and places that they never would have before. As a marketing employee here at the MOA, I love seeing new faces here at the museums and see those faces enjoy their time here with us!
Hurry and visit all the museums before March ends! Make it a date, a family trip, a roommate get-together, or a friend trip before March comes to an end! Get up and go MARCH the Museums with us!
