Upcoming Events

In addition to our thought-provoking exhibitions, there are a wide array of free public events and programs including artist talks, gallery tours, lectures, panel discussions and symposia. We also present related film screenings, Get-on-the-Bus art excursions and workshops offered at nominal fee. Group and personalized guided tours led by museum staff dive deeply into the themes of the exhibition and engage visitors in spirited dialogue.

We anticipate presenting in-person, live and hybrid, virtual pre-recorded digital experiences. Please regularly check back for new content!
