Art to Go Overview

A World of Great Art Comes to You! 

See and touch amazing works of art up to 4,000 years old when museum staff and trained volunteers visit you with genuine art objects from the museum’s collection. Interactive sessions offer a unique hands-on experience, engaging learners of all ages in exciting exploration and lively discussion about diverse cultures, time periods, materials, and techniques.  

Art to Go programs encourage observation, creative thinking, decision-making, problem-solving, and teamwork. Topics can be adapted to most age groups as museum educators select art objects specifically for each presentation. With supervision and wearing gloves, participants are able to handle actual art objects comprising varied media, including ceramics, textiles, prints, carved wood and stone, and cast metals.

Programs in schools connect to curricula for grades K–12, with relevance to state standards in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language, and the visual arts, offering a relevant and matchless complement to a range of disciplines. 

In libraries, community centers, adult facilities, and other venues, Art to Go offers opportunities for new discoveries, community building, and entertainment.

Presentations are available in English, French, and Spanish.
