Art Museum Day

Join us on Friday, May 18, for Art Museum Day 2018, a celebration of museums around the world, organized by the Association of Art Museum Directors in concert with the International Council of Museums's International Museum Day. We will open our doors free of charge and offer special activities.

Join Curator Lee Talbot at noon for a free tourĀ of the exhibition Vanishing Traditions: Textiles and Treasures from Southwest China, which showcases dazzling costumes worn by Chinese minority cultures for festival celebrations. Try your hand at cross-stitch embroidery techniques inspired by the exhibition in our new educational gallery, Textiles 101.
