Sketch Night


Museum Exhibit Design
May 7, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Free with museum admission

Our theme for the evening is exhibit design! Just what goes into planning and designing exhibits for a museum? The evening will focus on some of the Bell Museum designs and models under development and will give sketchers a chance to share their own ideas for the new museum.

If you have questions about Sketch Night, contact exhibits coordinator Jennifer Menken, 

Sketch Night is an informal sketching evening where accomplished illustrators, casual hobbyists and budding artists can gather to draw a variety of themed specimens from the Bell Museum's extensive collections. It's a rare opportunity to interact with many of these items that are often tucked away safely in the Bell's vaults!

Often, the evening also includes demonstrations from special guest artists. In addition to items representing the monthly theme, participants are welcome to sketch anything else in the museum that intrigues or inspires. Bring your utensils, let the inspiration flow and have fun!





Support for Sketch Night is provided by Wet Paint, an independently owned art supply shop in Saint Paul.
