About events this season: We aim for a safe & healthy environment as we bring programming indoors. We’ve adjusted our indoor events to keep our gatherings smaller.

House tours are available for up to six people at a time. We ask visitors to wear masks at indoor programs and outdoor group events for the present.

Check back for additional programs in the spring. Our art exhibitions return in May 15th starting with Amy Cheng: Spheres and Sinospheres.
