Galleries Opening and Plans for Virtual Community Exhibits

We in Studio Class Programs are so excited that the Museum Galleries are opening! The galleries opened to Members this past Thursday, October 1, and will open to all on October 7, 2020. Having access to such a wonderful collection of encyclopedic art for inspiration is one of the aspects of our program that we really appreciate - though that access has been different due to the pandemic.

You can get your admission tickets and learn more about our protocols to keep everyone safe online here.

I have already received an email from an excited art history student who was visiting Friday morning so they could view all of the pieces they had learned about through Martha Chiarchiaro's online art history lectures!

The Higgins Education Wing will not be opening for classes - or to the public just yet - but that won't stop us from creating and celebrating the arts! Keep your eyes open for upcoming calls for art for virtual exhibits. We are planning a virtual student exhibit and a virtual community exhibit for Flora 2021!
