    STAY CONNECTED

    Create. Collaborate. Connect. 

    We hope you are continuing to connect to the Park through both virtual and in-person programming. For Fall 2020, we were pleased to bring back some of our classes and workshops on site at the Park – with utmost attention to the safety of our students and instructors. We have continued this for Winter 2020-2021 classes. Our Partnership Galleries are now open with modifications to keep artists, staff, and patrons safe. Along with our resident artists and arts partners, we will also continue to provide virtual programming for all ages. Check out our online activities below. 


    WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS WEEK

    A new email is available every Wednesday afternoon with information about current and upcoming online and in-person activities -- including classes. Information about events can also be found on our events calendar.

    When you can't be at the Park in person, why not take a few minutes to learn about the history of the Spanish Ballroom or the Dentzel Carousel. Or hear from some of the artists in the Park in the 1970s and 1980s.
