Exhibit Tours Offered: “Knowledge at Work: The University of Illinois at 150”

Join staff of the Spurlock Museum for guided tours of the temporary exhibit Knowledge at Work: The University of Illinois at 150 on Thursday, July 19, between 4:00 and 5:00 pm. The exhibit traces the connections between the University of Illinois and people, places, and ideas near and far. Explore the history of campus as a community of educators, researchers, and students that values learning, research, and public service. Learn about the many ways that different people have contributed to campus history and the ways the University has changed how it relates to the people it serves. While visiting, try your hand at some UIUC trivia questions.

The tours are part of the Museum’s Third Thursday series celebrating the University’s history. Future offerings include information on the 100-year anniversary of the Press in August and a panel on labor at the University in October.
