Celebrating National CHIPS AND DIP DAY!

March 23, 2017 Eckhaus Gallery was open from 6:30-8 P.M.  in order to celebrate National Chips & Dip Day! Our Social Media and Public Relations intern, Ibadete Ferko, planned a night of delicious snacks and fun games. We were pleased to see our gallery filled with entertainment and laughter.

The night began with the snacks as guests joked about "only coming for the chips and dip." One of our directors, Emily, was especially proud of her homemade pizza dip and was happy to see the whole dish eaten by our hungry guests. There was also Nutella, buffalo chicken dip, sour cream and onion dip, salsa, and creamy spinach! Talk about a Great Feast! Eckhaus Gallery would like to thank all the talented chefs who prepared a dip for the event and satisfied all the chips and dip cravings that evening.

After a bit of munching and crunching, all 17 guests then sat down on our gallery floor in a giant circle and started to play "What Do You Meme." It must have been a fun game, from the amounts of laughter echoing in the room. Our friends continued playing the game for the entire event, never getting tired of it. Not even wanting to stop playing for a snack break, eventually the snacks just got moved down onto the floor with the players!

Ibadete reflected on how she thought the event went and stated, "it was fun seeing people come to the gallery who don't usually come and to see students reach out and try something new!"

Additionally at Eckhaus, we are preparing to feature new artwork! Come check out "The Big Feminist But" by a series of artists from March 30 - April 16 and don't miss the Opening Reception on April 8th, 6-8pm.
