Director's Message

Harn Friends,

On behalf of everyone at the Harn I wish you a Happy New Year. We have an exciting year ahead at the museum as we continue to offer premier exhibitions and programs for visitors of all ages. Did you know that the Harn creates at least 12 new art installations a year? That means that there is always something new and exciting to see.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Dr. Lee Anne Chesterfield
Harn Museum of Art Director
