No programs during 4th of July week and last week in August.
TUESDAY LUNCH LAUNCH • 12 PM
Convening in the Conversation Circle in the Living as Form gallery, these informal gatherings will introduce the artist-of-the-week, who will engage participants in discussion of issues that their work involves, whether the social history and politics of sugar; stewardship of water resources; community bonds expressed through textiles, stories, and maps; or how art can be an expressive tool for people suffering from memory loss, and more. Bring a bag lunch into the gallery or purchase great fare in Café Muse. Click here for full schedule.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13 • Noon-1 PM
Michael Strand on Alternative Networks: The Beautiful Risk of Being Bold
This noon-hour workshop with artist Michael Strand will begin with a lightning-fast art making session using clay (less than five minutes), followed by the group collectively examining three elements—what we made, what we value, and what is the appropriate or even alternative venue and audience for the project. These elements are part of Strand’s artistic practice, using an object as the medium to boldly reach out and create projects in partnership with groups and systems as varied as fire stations, libraries, and political organizations.
Convening in Living as Form gallery on the Museum’s second floor, this pop-up event is FREE and open to the public, for all ages and abilities. Bring a bag lunch into the gallery or purchase great fare at our onsite restaurant, Cafe Muse.
