[Pictured: Students studying in front of the Meleko Mokgosi exhibit at UMMA] - My goal with the SEC is to help make the museum a more welcoming space to everyone, and seeing students feel comfortable bringing their friends here and studying among the art is fantastic. I hope students know they can come spend time here even when Study Days are over! - Emily @econs.art @ummamuseum #StampsStudentTakeover #umstamps
