ARTWORKS Galleries I and II are ideal for multi-age groups, and the Museum offers three annual special events for families: the Flimp Festival the first Saturday in May, Military Open House in August (for families of active duty military), and Holiday Open House in December. Once a month on Sunday afternoons, the Museum offers a free art activity, related to temporary or permanent exhibitions. (See Current Calendar of Events).
This space contains more than 40 interactive exhibits for exploring art. ARTWORKS Gallery I and II interpret the permanent collection of the Museum but also include original art commissioned specifically for art education. Visitors are encouraged to touch the art in ARTWORKS and to explore the many computers with a variety of art-related software. For families and small groups, a mezzanine features an assortment of art-related books, games and puzzles.
