Director's Message

Dear Members and Friends, 

Summer is just the time to experiment with something fun and different. Join us this season for varied and unusual experiences in the Gladys Gracy Harn Exhibition Hall. Between our major spring and fall exhibitions, Blank Space: A Gallery of Activity and Imagination invites you to create, respond and play at the Harn. Blank Space will include interactive installations where visitors can experiment with light, shadow, physics, pattern, color and photography. Scheduled opportunities include yoga classes, storytelling and dance performances. Varied programs and visitor participation will continuously reinvent the gallery. I hope you will visit the Harn often during the summer months to take advantage of the creative programming our Education team has designed for your enjoyment and enlightenment!
