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.
Forging New Paths is an exhibit of ceramic narratives created by children and youth ages 8 to 17 who share in their personal experience of sexual abuse. These young artists show great courage and compassion towards one another and to their peers globally who, like them, have broken the silence that often shrouds sexual exploitation
It is not a single footstep that makes a path. A journey that is shared is likely to make it more accessible for others to make the travel less burdensome. This is the making of trailblazers; children and youth who are willing to share their personal experiences in order to make it easier for others who will ultimately come after them.
