Behind the Scenes Joint Chapter Tour of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center
for Visual Arts at Stanford University
Please join us for a special joint tour bringing together the San Francisco and Silicon Valley chapters. This tour will be a behind-the-scenes look at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University.
Formerly known as the Stanford University Museum of Art, the Cantor Arts Center has a collection spanning 5,000 years of art history and encompassing antiquity, ethnographic art, modern art, contemporary art, and sculpture gardens. The Cantor Center holds the largest collection of Auguste Rodin sculptures outside of the Musee Rodin in Paris.
**This tour is limited to 15 attendees, so please register early!**
*Please note that the attendance limit had to be revised from 25 to 15 due to safety and security concerns. Because of this, space is very limited. There has already been a lot of interest, so please register as soon as possible in order to secure a space.

Event Refund Policy: After careful review, the Executive Board of the SF Bay Region Chapter of SLA has decided that we cannot accommodate refunds or “rain checks” for our events (this includes programs, tours, professional development workshops, etc.).
Some reasons why:
• Our chapter does not make a profit on our events. We subsidize our events because it is important to us to be able to keep our attendance fees low.
• We are required to pay in advance for food and venues, and these costs are frequently based on head count. Therefore, we’ve already paid for your attendance.
• As a volunteer organization we are just not staffed to be able to keep track of refunds or attendance for future events.
So if you’ve paid for an event you find you cannot attend, please consider the following:
• Post a notice on our discussion board inviting a member to take your place
• Think of it a tax‐free donation to our organization.
