Spencer Museum of Art Reopens Blog News 10/14/201611/04/2016 Tweet On Friday, Oct. 15, the University of Kansas’s Spencer Museum of Art will reopen to the public after a series of renovations a year-and-a-half in the making. The museum will be open for its grand reopening weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Oct. 15 and from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Oct. 16. Admission is free to the public. The student advisory board hopes the new renovations, which include increased lighting, a new teaching gallery and a new print room, will make the space more inviting to students. Furthermore, the advisory board hopes the museum will become a space in which students would like to hangout. In the future, the museum, which houses over 40,000 art pieces, might also look to expand.
