Public Programs

Let GMD staff present a program on design for your community, or professional group. Designed for groups of all ages, GMD programs feature lectures and discussions about design, illustrated by Powerpoint slides and collection objects (when presented at McNeal Hall). Presentations are made by GMD staff at McNeal Hall on the University of Minnesota’s Saint Paul campus, or at locations throughout the Twin Cities (up to a 50 mile radius from campus).  

Programs may be selected from existing ones or be customized for your group.  Each slide-illustrated lecture will be between 30 minutes to an hour as requested by the group. For on-site programs at McNeal Hall, viewing collection objects and/or a gallery tour may be added to the experience.

Contact Jean McElvain, Assistant Curator, 612.625.2737 or at least one month in advance of the date you would like to schedule a lecture, to discuss your group’s interest.
