Burke Museum
Daily 10 am – 5 pm | Closed on December 25 and January 1

Experience natural and cultural collections at the Burke Museum. The Burke brings research and collections out from behind the scenes so you can bring your perspective and your passions forward.  We can use them to learn about the past, connect to the world around us, and create a better future together.

Explore contemporary art, artists and ideas at the Henry Art Gallery.

In Plain Sight is a group exhibition that engages artists whose work addresses narratives, communities, and histories that are typically hidden or invisible in our public space (both conceptually and literally defined).

These Are Their Stories by Samantha Scherer is an ongoing series of black watercolor drawings on small squares of lightly tinted paper depicting victims from the television crime drama Law & Order.
