Art Carts

Kids (and adults!) can get creative with our Art Carts during your visit. One is located on the first floor outside our main galleries, and the Francine Brady Art Cart on our second floor along with our seasonal Artist of Inspiration display. Each offers a different free activity! Visit the Programs page to see what activities are featured.

Group Tours

We are happy to schedule FREE group tours of the facilities and provide information on our history, programming, and exhibitions. In addition to art exhibitions in our galleries, we also have two stairwell panel exhibits: the Art History Timeline, offering glimpses from the prehistoric era to the 1970s, and Our Industrial Past, telling the story of our neighborhood and historic building. Tours can be staff or self-guided, and can be tailored to your interests and schedule. To schedule a tour, please contact us (301-698-0656 ext 107).
