Group Tours + Workshops

Informal tours of our current exhibitions are available for visitors on request during gallery hours. Just ask at our front desk! On Saturdays between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm you’ll find our Gallery Attendants upstairs; they are happy to lead you on a tour and answer any questions you have!

We can currently accommodate group tours of up to eight, with advance booking. New to contemporary art? We are happy to tailor your tour to meet your needs. Exhibition tours are approximately 45 minutes in length and are available year-round. Exhibition tours during gallery hours are free with admission (suggested admission $5 per person). After gallery hours, exhibition tours are $5 per person.
