ArtWorks Gallery

Overview

Popular with all ages, the ArtWorks Gallery is an engaging interactive space designed to complement the Museum’s permanent collection with 2-and-3-dimensional reproductions, as well as art created by regional artists like Charlie Lucas, Homer Johnson, George Rodrigue, Barbara Gallagher and Tara Cady Sartorius—to name a few. Visitors connect to art through tangible interactive exhibits that explore materials and techniques found throughout the Museum’s collection, and are offered additional spaces for quiet reading or imaginative play. Visitors can expect to see vibrant exhibits, discover opportunities for drop-in art activities, free family programming, and much more. The space is meant to connect the visitor with the art as much as it is meant to connect visitors to one another.
