Mother and son looking through microscope in Fine Arts Conservation Lab during Owens Open House

Special partnerships have taken us out of the Gallery and into our community to deliver programming in unexpected places including a local park, the Middle School gymnasium and an abandoned theatre. We like being out and about but there is lots to see and do inside the Owens too.

We have an exhibition program that brings in artwork and artists from across the country and beyond. Come out to our openings and artists' talks and visit our painting vault and Fine Art Conservation Laboratory at our annual Open House. Check out our calendar for a full schedule of events.
