They are engaging, participatory experiences that connect us by creating a dialogue through artist talks, panel discussions, interactive gallery spaces, and digital resources. Through all of our programs, exhibitions, and classes, we are connecting with people to encourage a deeper relationship with art that resonates in our everyday lives in meaningful ways. You help provide creative opportunities throughout the year for children, families, and individuals—many visiting for the first time.
