Monday Night at the Master

The “Monday Night at the Master” program features presentations by residents and commercial tenants of the Master Apartments for residents and guests. Residents discuss their professional work, avocations, and creative work in an informal atmosphere. Although at its inception the program was scheduled on Monday evenings, the program evolved and presentations are now held on other evenings and occasional weekends as well.
