Let’s Reflect

Pick out a colorful, handmade notebook, and take a moment to sit down and do some journaling with our prompts. As you journal, take some time to reflect on how you feel in this space—an on-site installation, hand in hand, by the artist Sarah Cain.

Let’s Discover

Upper and Lower Jetté Galleries

Join the student guides in a mindful scavenger hunt to help you slow down and look carefully at details of works featured in the special exhibition, Act of Sight: The Tsiaras Family Photography Collection.

Artful Movements

Paul J. Schupf Wing for the Works of Alex Katz

Join Kathleen Haberstock and Brenda Colfer for a calming yoga practice and sound bath that will restore and revitalize. Release tension from problem areas with gentle movement, practice yogic breathing techniques and meditation, and lie in restorative yoga poses while the healing sound bath washes over us. The goal is to leave feeling more relaxed and at ease.

We will have three sessions of yoga classes that will start at 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:15 pm. The classes will have about twenty minutes of movement & then 10-15 minutes of meditation, breath work & restorative yoga. 

Note: Museum staff will direct participants to the pre-set yoga mats in the gallery space, placed in locations that help keep the art safe. Cleaning materials will be provided.

Let’s Bloom

Paul J. Schupf Sculpture Court

Make seed bombs with members of the Museum Student Advisory Board (MSAB). Choose the spot where you toss it carefully—find a place in your yard, or the yard of a friend or family member.

Note: In case of inclement weather, art-making activities taking place on the Stradley Terrace and Paul J. Schupf Sculpture Court. will be modified and moved to indoor locations.
