University parking behind the Museum will be made available to the public starting at 4:00pm. The Allaboard Trolley will shuttle patrons to and from the Museum to the downtown Ashland area between 5:00pm and 10:00pm – a generous amount of time to visit the Museum, the student studios and Center for the Visual Arts (CVA) Galleries, and then visit your favorite Ashland galleries, studios, restaurants and more.
