The Gallery Engagement Team (G.E.T.)
The Gallery Engagement Team at Bucknell University is a student-run group devoted to creating awareness and advocating community involvement with the campus’ Samek Art Museum. G.E.T. members work closely with the Samek Museum Director, Richard Rinehart, as well as other members of the staff, to promote museum exhibitions and events. The group is also in contact with many other student organizations, encouraging the use of the Museum as a unique space for art-related or unrelated events. Interested in signing up?
