NOTE: In preparation for the special and elaborate exhibition “Branding the American West” at Stark Museum of Art, the Museum will be closing some galleries. Beginning January 23, we invite the public to come by to view Gallery 4 (Arts of the American Indians) and the many objects located in wall cases in the Lobby and the open corridor. We appreciate your patience while we are working to bring you something exciting and new!

The Stark Museum of Art offers a wide range of programs for adults including lectures, tours, gallery conversations, studio workshops, and more throughout the year. For a full list of offerings, see below.
