Cal Day is cancelled

We are sad to announce that Cal Day is cancelled this year as a precaution against COVID-19. This is our biggest event of the year and our best chance to connect with our local community. Hopefully you will come visit us in the fall during Alumni Weekend.

A Big Thank You!

Our sincerest thanks to all who participated in the Big Give this week. Even the smallest amount makes a big difference. If you missed out on Thursday because you were tired of deleting Big Give emails, you still can help support the teaching, research, and outreach we do here at the Essig Museum by donating securely online.
