Director's Message

Harn Friends,

The holidays are approaching and the Harn has so many fun activities for you to enjoy this season. This is a great time to treat yourself to a day at the museum! You could begin with an hour or two engaging in our new exhibitions, followed by lunch at the Camellia Court Café. After lunch, stop to see your favorite artworks in the permanent collection and spend some time in one of the Harn’s beautiful Asian gardens. Be sure to stop at the Harn Museum Store before you leave. It is the perfect place for unique holiday gifts.  
I also hope you will join me, along with my family, on December 1 for the Harn’s Family Day: Art in Nature, and Museum Nights on November 8 and December 13.
