The Week Ahead @ The Henry

We welcome fall with open arms with its pumpkin spice, changing leaves, Halloween candy, students’ return to campus, and new exhibitions at the Henry. Seeing so many students has reinvigorated the staff and we look forward to being curious and expanding our minds with you.


Quiet, please.

Speaking of minds, have you ever meditated on art? How about with art? Every second Thursday of the month we invite you to do both at Mindfulness Meditation and for a half hour bask in stillness, and learn to breathe art in and stress out. Starts at noon-thirty (check in at the front desk for this month’s location).

Join us this coming Sunday at 2 pm we travel through space and time during our ArtVENTURES at the Henry!

Families will be creating time capsules inspired by the work of exhibiting artists Ray Metzker and David Hartt who transform ordinary scenes and fragments from daily life into extraordinary compositions.
