I will be arriving on Tuesday just before the 4:00pm talk on the Migration Quilts, which seems to be part of the day long symposium scheduled to take place at the Student Union. As you have indicated previously, the quilts will be an display until 6:00pm on Tuesday after the presentations. Will the quilts be viewed at the Student Union or at the Jerome Library on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018? Sorry to have so many questions! Thanks for your help!

The quilts will be available for view until 6:00pm on Tuesday. For the symposium events on Tuesday, we recommend using the visitor parking at the Union. There is also visitor parking adjacent to the Library in Lot N.

Will there be a chance to view the Migration Quilts after the presentations at 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm by Judy Ibsen & Peggy Hazard on Tuesday November 13th? If so, how much time will be allowed for viewing? Also, I am a community resident not affiliated with BGSU and would like to inquire where to park for this presentation. Thanks. Meg Sears
