Virtual Tours of The Best of 2020-2021

June – August, 2021

Schedule your group of seven or more to virtually tour our current exhibition, The Best of 2020-2021 with an interactive, inquiry-based tour appropriate for all audiences. Our educator will meet with your group via Zoom, take you on a virtual walk around the gallery, and bring focus to five works of art for a casual conversation.

If your group is still restricted and unable to take field trips, this is an excellent opportunity to experience the exhibition and engage with art together. Participants can log in from anywhere, with any device.  Tours can be scheduled on weekdays between 10:30 and 4pm. Email to schedule, or to ask any questions.
