Explore art and culture through lively discussions in the galleries, lectures by specialists, or hands-on classes that connect you to the Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions.

Adult Classes

Developed for life-long learners, these courses invite extensive exploration of art-related topics and are taught by expert artists, curators, museum educators, and university professors.

Youth Classes

Join us to look at and make amazing art—no experience necessary. Museum classes, led by experienced art educators, give young learners the opportunity to explore the art of diverse cultures and time periods from around the globe.

Gallery Talks

These free, hour-long informal discussions offer insights into the Museum’s permanent collection and featured exhibitions. They take place in the galleries (unless otherwise noted) and are led by curators, museum educators, professors, artists, and other experts.


Esteemed artists, curators, scholars, and authors speak on art, culture, and other aspects of the Museum’s collections and featured exhibitions. All events in The Farrell Auditorium, including free events, are ticketed.
