We've reopened with modified summer hours and free admission on weekends! There's plenty of space to reconnect and amazing art to discover in all corners of the Museum. Please read our new health and safety policies before your visit.
From sticky to crusty, pliable to powdery, and shaped to shapeless, clay’s ability to transform in real time is prompting a new generation of artists to explore the possibilities of this ancient material. RAW features new work by four artists who are pushing boundaries with unfired clay: Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson. See it now!
We're excited to introduce Clay Date, a new online art fundraiser in support of the Gardiner Museum and inspired by the special exhibition RAW. Presented by the Young Patron Circle's SMASH Committee, Clay Date will virtually unite a community of art enthusiasts and cultural philanthropists for an evening with artist Habiba El-Sayed.
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!
As we begin to welcome visitors back to the Gardiner, we need your support to continue offering innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects on site and online. Make a donation and help us build community with clay.
Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The safety of our visitors, campers, staff, and volunteers is our top priority.
The Gardiner Museum is temporarily closed as of March 14, 2020. We have also cancelled all March Break Camps, clay classes, and special events scheduled to take place before June. Participants who have registered for these programs will be contacted directly and refunds will be issued.
We regret the inconvenience that this may cause, but are hopeful that these actions and the actions of our fellow cultural institutions will help maintain the health and safety of our communities. We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure and will post updates to our website and social media channels as they become available.
We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will make every effort to respond in a timely fashion.
Sending best wishes to you and your community. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon.
