SCRAM (Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum) is a student group that works closely with the Rose Art Museum to organize events for the Brandeis student body.
Funded through the generous contributions of Mr. Alex Barkas '68 and his wife, Ms. Lynda Wijcik, the goal of this committee is to strengthen the relationship between the Rose and Brandeis students.
SCRAM events expose students to the Rose who may be unfamiliar with the museum as well as provide students with opportunities for more in-depth interaction with the museum and its collection. Additionally, SCRAM serves as the voice of the student body to the Rose Art Museum, communicating student interests and opinions.
Past events include SCRAM JAM (a mixer held after hours in the museum), Yoga in the Rose, live music such as a recent performance by the Books, and a Fine Arts Career Panel.
Events in the works for 2011 include a Movie Screening Series, Visual Thinking Thursdays, Visiting Artist's Talks, and gallery talks by Brandeis professors.
Students, if you are interested in being a part of SCRAM or getting SCRAM involved in an event you are planning, please email Dabney Hailey.
