We hope to welcome you soon to the museum.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to building construction, galleries in the Kinkead Pavilion portion of the museum will be de-installed starting in November 2023. That portion of the museum will close December 22, including galleries, our Collection Study Area and the Giertz Education Center. It will remain closed throughout the yearlong project.

The remainder of the museum, accessed via Peabody Drive, including Art Since 1948, Encounters the Arts of Africa, and special exhibition spaces in the East Gallery, West Gallery, and Light Court, will remain open to the public.
