Tours & Public Engagement

Tours & Public Engagement

At Rodman Hall it is our belief that education is an integral aspect of making art relevant to the general public. It is through discovering, learning, creating and interacting that the arts become significant and relevant in our lives. It is an important component of our mandate and reflects our interest in developing visual, cultural and creative communities. After all, creativity, ideas, knowledge, and invention go hand in hand. Permanent collection and temporary exhibition related tours, lectures and workshops are offered throughout the year.
