Sharing Europe was the theme for the University of Florida’s Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art’s monthly Museum Nights on Thursday, April 13. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., visitors had the chance to experience a collection of paintings and drawings from Europe as well as other art pieces from Asia, Africa and Latin America. The museum also offered food and drinks to the visitors. Before the night was over, Jake Lesh and Christie Robinson, UF Master of Fine Arts students, entertained visitors with a performance of scenes from classical plays such as “Faust” and “Hamlet.” Museum Nights is held bi-monthly at the Harn Museum of Art.
