CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY IN PRINCETON

Now more than ever, people across the country are visiting art museums, seeking experiences of beauty and wonder, a respite from everyday pressures, a favorite artist or a new one, enrichment, and general delight.

May 18 is the international day of recognition for museums, and the Princeton University Art Museum welcomes you to celebrate the arts with us--this day and every day. The Art Museum always offers free admission to the public, so for Museum Day we've planned a few special reasons for you to join us.

ART BUTTONS
Choose a button to wear and let your art shine! Select from a fun assortment of buttons with inspirational phrases like "art matters" or iconic characters by Keith Haring . . . yours to keep, reminding you of how much art enriches your life. Free while supplies last.
