The launchpad for the Museum's out-of-this-world educational programming is the Hartman Education Center, where all of our summer campers, families painting on the grounds, field trip students, and art lovers of all ages gather to find inspiration and make art together.

This year's Raise Your Bid will devote every dollar raised to much-needed renovations of this workhorse space, helping us expand the upstairs loft and create tons of new storage and usable space for our Manager of Youth Education & Outreach Julie Garvin Riggs to do her magic!
