We’re excited to welcome visitors back to a new Museum experience starting this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9. Learn more about the free opening weekend celebration and see a full schedule of events celebrating the People’s Collection, reimagined. On Saturday, we anticipate parking to be at capacity throughout the day and encourage carpooling and/or alternative modes of transportation.

Mindful Museum: Slow-Art Appreciation


Slow art is a growing movement to mindfully observe and communally appreciate art. This interactive program guides you through centering techniques followed by intentional observations of Three Graces: Les Trois Femmes Noires by Mickalene Thomas and the ancient Roman Statue of Aphrodite Anadyomene (Cyrene Type). Sharing and discussion are encouraged. This is a great practice to calm the mind and experience art in a deeper way. Space is limited. For ages 16 and up.
