The Giertz Education Center opened an "Art You Can Touch" interactive space in 2019, where visitors of any age can explore touch and texture while they create mini exhibitions of their own, using objects in the Center.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Krannert Art Museum has closed the Giertz Education Center "Art You Can Touch" interactive space until further notice. 

Krannert Art Museum staff are in the process of evaluating and reorganizing the Giertz Education Center collection of over 200 art replicas and 800 art posters through the remainder of 2021. During this time period, we are temporarily unable to lend out objects or fulfill resource requests. We look forward to offering new resources and opportunities to engage with the Education Center in 2022.

For questions regarding the Giertz Education Center, please contact Education Coordinator, Ishita Dharap via email.
