Babies thrive on dynamic environments, so each month we’ll explore a different set of artwork. There will be touchable toys for the little ones and adult conversation for you and like-minded art lovers. Finish your visit with a leisurely talk over complimentary coffee and tea in our café. Strollers, crying, and older siblings are all welcome here.Infants from 2-18 months and adults welcome. Included with museum admission; free to members. Ten spaces are available.

Women Artists – June 18
