This space is used for the Museum’s public programming where visitors participate in courageous conversations and hands-on workshops with people from a diverse range of backgrounds including artists, educators, and each other. In addition, The Studio has drop-in hours on weekends where visitors of all ages can participate in self-directed art-making projects. The scale of The Studio allows for intimate and focused experiences catalyzed by the artists’ work and ideas present in the exhibitions.
We’re thrilled to re-open The Studio to families for Explore! – a drop-in art-making series during Museum open hours on weekends. Families can explore the themes in our current exhibitions by creating art through a self-guided activity with free materials and prompts on display in The Studio! Each month on Third Saturday, the Museum's monthly free admission day, a new Explore! activity will be introduced and visitors of all ages are welcome to participate.
