In January 2005, the Blaffer Art Museum Student Association (BAMSA) was founded with the goal to increase student participation in the museum community, enabling students to enrich their educational experience and the museum to reach an important audience.
Currently, BAMSA strives to present activities that are social and fun, and that spark students’ quest for knowledge—as well as to provide opportunities for University of Houston students to get involved in planning or promoting Blaffer educational programs such as Brown Bag Gallery Tours and Studio Saturday (an annual day of art-making). Lastly, BAMSA gives students an outlet to promote the arts on campus.
What BAMSA Gives and Gains
BAMSA welcomes university students from all academic disciplines who share a passion for the arts and are interested in meeting like-minded peers. Officers lead the group, and members assist and participate in BAMSA events. Both groups receive e-news blasts to keep them in the loop about upcoming events.
