Truman’s Art Department rounded up a bus and the students to fill it to go on a trip March 23rd to Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Students from several art and museum studies classes took advantage of the day-long adventure. Dr. Sara Orel and Associate Dean of Libraries for Special Collections Amanda Langendoerfer led the trip, and they were joined by Dr. Heidi Cook and recent Truman graduate Nick Phan while at the museum. It was a full day, but a fun one. Stay tuned for more student travel photos and stories, coming soon!
