Tentative Schedule of Museum Visits and Related Experiences

This is a tentative schedule of museum visits for class as well as activities and guest speakers. Please try your best to be at the museum and ready precisely at 6 PM. Allow extra time to get to the museum due to rush hour traffic. Where there are admission fees, you will be paying them (don't forget: there are no texts for the class!). However, if you can't afford to pay the admissions, please contact your professor.
