Not familiar with ZOOM? No problem! You will be able to see and hear the presenter clearly on the screen of your choice: computer, tablet, or phone.
Artie is our mascot at the Art Center, a stuffed cat named after a real cat who lived here in the Gallery for a while. He moves all over the Gallery! Kids love looking for Artie (big kids too). Can you find Artie?
