from the sixteenth century to the present, we design Adult programs to engage the public in conversations, performances, lectures, and other experiences that provide a multi-dimensional perspective of the exhibitions on view. Through the programs, audiences engage a diverse cross section of artists, writers, scholars, and critics, and participate in events that encourage life-long learning.
Enjoy daytime and evening programs, including artist talks, expert lectures, panel discussions, performances, and day-trips to nearby art and historically relevant venues.VIEW CALENDAR
We offer a variety of classes to artists of all ages that are led by professionals in the field who use the museum’s exhibitions and collection as a catalyst for exploring and creating works of art. Please check out The Gibbes Calendar for specific classes.VIEW CALENDAR

For tours that focus on a specific theme, exhibition, or artist, please inquire in advance. A 10-person minimum is required to reserve a tour.LEARN MORE
