Thrift stores and auction houses? Giant pandas and Facebook?

“Think Tank Thursdays,” a new program hosted by Weatherspoon Art Museum, will help visitors explore what those seemingly unrelated things have in common.  The programming will pair scholars with community experts to discuss and help foster creative thinking.

The event, which is open to the public at no charge, is scheduled for Oct. 25, Nov. 29, Jan. 31, Feb. 28 and March 28 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

More information is available on the Weatherspoon Art Museum web site.
