Take a deep dive with us into art-related topics presented by artists, scholars, art historians, and experts! See below for upcoming programs. In addition to Art at Noon, we also occasionally present artful things in the evening with Art at Night programs.

Programs will be accessible either through a webinar or in person at the Delaplaine. In either case, a recording will be shared on our YouTube channel afterwards (typically about a week after the live program). You can also view other past programs on our YouTube channel.
