Hundreds of art lovers visited Mizzou North April 19 for the grand reopening of the Museum of Art & Archaeology. The museum had been closed for 18 months while staff relocated the collections from their long-time home in Pickard Hall to the new spot on Business Loop 70, in the building that previously housed the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center. The building's second-floor operating rooms have been converted into gallery space for the permanent collection, and the lobby now houses the museum's cast gallery.
The re-opening event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony, docent-led tours and refreshments. Tigers and members of the Columbia community ducked in from the rain to spend their Sunday afternoon taking in the art.
