Museum Nights

Join us for our once-a-month event where we are open in the evenings. Museum Nights offer multiple activities and performances that help our visitors connect with art in fun and interesting ways. Fun for all ages. And enjoy free food!

Museum Nights happen the second Thursday of each month from 6 to 9 pm.

Museum Nights is an ongoing program made possible by the generous support of the University of Florida Office of the Provost and Student Government.

Museum Nights activities often stem from collaboration with campus and community groups. Have ideas on how your club or group might contribute? Contact Eric Segal with ideas or for more information.

Harn Voices

I love the Harn. The art is so full of poetry its inspiring. I love Museum Nights when we set up a table and invite visitors to sit down with us and do a little creative writing about the art they've seen.
