Third Thursdays
We offer a monthly DeTOUR on the third Thursday of each month. DeTOURS are an exclusive themed tour that is both engaging and entertaining. These tours focus on some amazing personal lives of artists, the inspiration and method to their madness, and lesser known facts about some of the works in our collection. Each tour includes activities, personal connections, and mind-blowing facts! Learn more
