Events

Low Sensory Morning
May 21 & June 25, 2022 | 9-10:30 a.m.

We invite participants into the museum an hour before we open to the public to provide a quiet and low-stimulating environment where you can enjoy hands-on art-making activities and experience art in the galleries. Visual resources, hand fidgets, a low sensory break room and other accommodations will be provided. This is an activity for families with children on the autism spectrum or people who have sensory sensitivities.
