Group Visits + Tours


We welcome self-guided group visits and we also offer a variety of guided tours run by our trained staff. To best accommodate requests and ensure that our gallery spaces are available for the time you have in mind, please let us know at least a week in advance of when you would like to come for a self-guided group visit and a month in advance for a guided tour.  Guided tours with art activities require advance scheduling and are subject to studio availability in the Art School.
