The Yale Art Museums’ Open House “invites the community to learn more about art and the museums’ collections and programs in an informal setting,” the statement said. “The celebration coincides with New Haven’s “First Thursdays” when area shops are open late.”
The museum tours by Yale student guides are intended to offer creative insights and performances by Yale’s celebrated a cappella singing groups are intended to “bring music and energy to the experience of looking at art,” the statement said.
Student guides and museum staff will be on hand to answer questions and to speak about upcoming exhibitions and events at each museum. There will also be a Yale improv group and art activities, the statement said,
Tours and performances begin at 5:30 p.m. A cappella groups, which will perform throughout the evening at various locations in the Gallery and Center are: The Baker’s Dozen, The Duke’s Men, Red Hot & Blue, Rhythmic Blue, and The Yale Alley Cats.

The 'Bakers Dozen' is a fantastic group, with so much talent! They, and the other groups, will be a wonderful addition to this event!
