In addition to inspiring people with our classes, we spark imaginations with world-class art installed on our terrace and in our galleries. We maintain the beautiful stone mill that deepens your ties with the past and provide a gathering place for your family and friends on the Toshiko Takaezu Terrace.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation so that we may continue being a place to connect people to contemporary art, craft, and design in ways that educate, challenge, and inspire.
