Celebrate, Destress at the Gallery

A total of six virtual reality experiences will be available during the
holiday celebration.

On Dec. 7, the Memorial Union Gallery will host a holiday event from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We thought we would have a celebration of the gallery and the holidays so everyone can just sort of relax during finals and come in and listen to some music, play some games and just have a good time, ” Gallery Coordinator Anthony Faris explained.

The party will include holiday-themed refreshments throughout the day such as hot apple cider, tea and cookies.

While the Baccalaureate Exhibition will not be on display during this time, entertainment will be provided in the form of expanded virtual reality experiences as well as a 2 p.m. performance by local alternative country band Walker Rider.

In addition to the two current installments in the VR Gallery, four new virtual reality sets will be set up for visitors to experience. Two of the VR programs that will be showcased were created by students.

“We want the gallery to be a place where people can look at art, build relationships and also have some fun. That’s sort of the goal of the holiday party,” Faris concluded.
