Exhibition Celebrations

Our seasonal Exhibition Celebrations are some of our biggest gatherings of the year! Three times a year—winter, summer, and fall—on a Friday evening from 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm, the Museum hosts a reception to celebrate our latest changeover of exhibitions in the galleries. Hors-d'oeuvres, drinks, and music are offered throughout the evening. You'll have the chance to meet museum staff, exhibiting artists, featured historians, and fellow cultural enthusiasts from across our High Country community. Every reception is free, family-friendly, and always a party you don't want to miss!


Our Winter Exhibition Celebration will take place on Friday, December 13th from 4:30 - 7:00 pm. Join us as we celebrate the opening of our winter exhibitions!
