In 2017-2018, the Museum served 366,016 participants, including 59,520 children, through onsite and offsite educational programs and exhibitions. We provided approximately 55,905 contact hours of otherwise unavailable arts education and engagement through more than 644 high-impact programs. Exhibitions and educational programs engaged constituents at regional, national, and international levels, reaching participants from every county in WNC, 44 states, and several foreign countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Mexico, Scotland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
When the Museum reopens in 2019, we will continue to offer a wide range of programming for all ages - from early childhood initiatives and Summer Art Camp, to our Adult Studio, live dance and musical performances, gallery talks, and more.
In the meantime, be sure to check back here often for an ongoing schedule of outreach initiatives including preschool storytime at local libraries, pop-up exhibitions and related programs, and art travel excursions.
Thank you to the Robert & Mercedes Eichholz Foundation, the Edith & Frances Mulhall Achilles Memorial Fund, and the Biltmore Community Benefit Fund for supporting the Museum's educational programs in 2018-2019.
