Arts Roundup: Student art, ongoing exhibits — and natural science trivia

News and Information

Should you want a break from the Olympics, UW arts are here for you. There are student art exhibits, a student-organized show of print arts and popular ongoing exhibits at the Burke Museum and Henry Art Gallery.

The Burke also is restarting its monthly trivia contest at the College Inn Pub — a sort of local Olympics of natural science knowledge, if you will, with beer.
