From Jean-Honoré Fragonard to Salvador Dali, the Guerrilla Girls to Banksy, playfulness, wit, and humor are driving forces of the history of art. Though often ignored by historians, play has allowed generations of artists to explore complex issues, change, and discover identities, and to create fresh perspectives and cutting edge works of art. Join us at the Harrington Gallery for a slide lecture on the history of play by curator Dr. Alena Sauzade. The talk will be followed by refreshments and a walk-through of the Play Date! exhibition currently on view at the Harrington Gallery.


An exciting and educational afternoon program for kids ages 5-11.  Kids will learn about each new exhibit in the Harrington Gallery and then create a fun art project to take home. Visit to sign up.
