My Museum Monday is back!

Art Center members have the opportunity to spend up to three hours in the museum when it is otherwise closed to the public. Have you always wanted to play your guitar inside the Art Center? Recite poetry to your favorite works of art? Read a comic book on the spiral staircase of the I.M. Pei building?  Now you can! 

All that is required is a current membership, a brief online application, and your imagination. Every My Museum Monday experience is as unique as our members themselves- you can submit a fully formed plan or just a simple idea.

Find inspiration below from members who have already taken advantage of My Museum Monday and fill out an application for your own experience at the bottom of this page.

Check out these previous My Museum Monday experiences for inspiration. The possibilities are endless!
