Calendar of Events & Exhibitions

Year-End Celebration

This spring, President Monaco will host a picnic lunch on all of our campuses for students, faculty, and staff to gather following the conclusion of a busy academic year. In keeping with tradition, these picnics are zero-waste events. Those who can are encouraged to BYOP – Bring Your Own (reusable) Place-setting (plate, utensils, cup/water bottle). All attendees who BYOP will be entered into a raffle to win a special grand prize at the Office of Sustainability’s table. Each event will also include a perks fair with tables sharing information about some of the quality-of-life benefits available to faculty and staff from Tufts University.


The Tufts University Galleries showcase emerging and established artists through cutting edge exhibitions and programs. Located in Medford and in Boston, the Galleries function as a meeting space for critical inquiry, artistic practice, and relevant discourse from across the art world. 


Tufts PUBLIC is a new temporary art program in and around open spaces throughout the university's Boston and Medford campuses.
