Artists' Receptions

Join us to celebrate the opening of all of our exhibitions. These events feature talks by curators and visiting dignitaries, multi-media presentations, and the chance to meet the artists and other like-minded patrons. Artists’ receptions are held at the opening of each exhibition cycle in the museum and Kreeger Lobby. They are free and open to the public with no advance registration required.

Gallery Talks

We regularly host exhibiting artist talks, whereby visitors have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with world-class international and local artists. These events are free and open to the public with no advance registration required. Unless otherwise noted, gallery talks are held in the museum.

Yoga in the Galleries

Yoga at AU Museum.

Enjoy restorative morning yoga in our galleries on alternating Wednesdays. See the Museum Special Events Calendar for exact dates — and bring your mat!

Kids @ Katzen

Kids at Katzen

Our Kids @ Katzen program offers children from the ages of 5 to 12 a unique opportunity to engage in art. Participants are introduced to an exhibition on view by participating artists and are then led in creating their own project inspired by the artwork. These workshops require advance registration and are held on Sundays at 1 p.m. in the Katzen Arts Center Rotunda unless otherwise noted. The cost is a nominal cash fee, paid on the day of the event.

Please join the Museum Mailing List to receive notification of Kids@Katzen and other events, as well as links to advance registration.
