Dear FAS members,
We hope this semester has been going well for everyone and wish anyone with upcoming midterms good luck! Some great events are in the works for this semester!
We will be attending a guided tour of the Judd Foundation on Spring Street on Saturday, April 4th at 12pm. We are planning to stop for gelato after, if weather permits! There is no co-pay, but the RSVP deadline is 3/18. The first few people to respond will be added to the list, and will be notified when your spot is confirmed.
We will be taking a trip to DIA Beacon on April 25th, the trip will be most of the day; most likely we will be back by 6pm but more details to follow.There is $25 copay and the RSVP is due 3/28. The first people to respond will be added to the list and notified when your spot is confirmed.
The second annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon is being held this Saturday, March 7th  from 11 AM to 5 PM at MOMA. Come do your part to help close Wikipedia’s gender gap! Sign up here and read all about it in ARTnews.
As of now, the RSVP list for JR�s Project Unframed-Ellis Island on April 12th is full. Unfortunately, if you did not hear back it is because there is no more space left.
We are still planning a trip to the Cooper Hewitt Museum, more details will be sent out soon.
Our Young Professionals career symposium will be held March 25th and our second career symposium featuring more experienced professionals will be held on April 15Th.
Wasserman is holding an interesting arts-related event tonight, speaking about how to apply a degree in the humanities to a career. Please see information below. Note that the RSVP is through CareerNet.
A panel of professionals from the Guggenheim Museum, Twitter, Vision Education & Media and NYU who studied the humanities will talk about how they landed their dream job and will provide you with helpful tips for your own career exploration. Academics will discuss graduate school and preparation for a scholarly career. This event will be followed by a networking reception.
