The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week! Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, and get hands-on with clay in our studios. We look forward to welcoming you.
Discover recent work by African American artist Sharif Bey in our lobby. Bey foregrounds African and Afro-diasporic aesthetic traditions and considers the role of historical artifacts removed from their cultures of origin.
Don't wait to sign up for the Gardiner's popular summer camps. New this year, all our week-long sessions are full-day multimedia camps, so kids can draw, paint, sculpt, and more.
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
Help us continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects in person and online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation today.
Each year, clients from the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic participate in a unique trauma informed art therapy group for women survivors of child sexual abuse/incest, adult sexual assault, and intimate partner abuse. The women work with clay to produce a ceramic piece of art in reference to a common theme that is introduced in advance of their participation.
Suzanne Thomson, an art therapist, and Susan Low-Beer, a ceramic artist, facilitate the group. The women are directly involved in the design and installation of the art exhibit, each time offering the public a unique and compelling window to their reflections on violence against women and their hopes for healing. Join us this year for Consciousness Blooms.
