Art To Go

Art to Go

Designed to engage participants into learning about art history and art in a compelling presentation, the program uses the art on display at the Museum as a starting point.

Launched in the fall of 2007, the Academy Art Museum's Art To Go is an outreach program that addresses the needs of special adult populations. Museum teachers travel to retirement homes, senior centers, fixed-income housing centers, special needs facilities and neighborhood service centers to educate and enrich the lives of adults in the Eastern Shore community, focusing on senior citizens and the growing immigrant community.  Designed to engage participants into learning about art history and art in a compelling presentation, the program uses the art on display at the Museum as a starting point. Museum educators develop curriculum plans in cooperation with each center's staff to ensure the content of each classroom session is relevant and accessible to all participants. It is also possible for participants to visit the Museum and receive a guided tour of the exhibition. Following the tour, participants will be able to create related art projects.

Art To Go is provided free of charge. For more information, contact Constance Del Nero,  Director of ArtReach and Community Programs at cdelnero@academyartmuseum.org.
