Coffee with the Collection | September 23 at 9:30 a.m.


Friday, September 23 at 9:30 am, we will explore the unconventional life and work of OU graduate, Olinka Hrdy. Artists from the Factory Obscura team will join the conversation to share aspects of Hrdy's work that inspired their immersive experience SYNESTHESIA currently on view at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art.

Coming soon! With flavors that relate to these artworks, our friends at Yellow Dog Coffee Company are working on a special roast to give you a taste of art during the program.
