Museum Nights

Join us for our once-a-month event where we are open in the evenings. Museum Nights offer multiple activities and performances that help our visitors connect with art in fun and interesting ways. Fun for all ages. And enjoy free food!

Museum Nights activities often stem from collaboration with campus and community groups. Have ideas on how your club or group might contribute? Contact Eric Segal with ideas or for more information.


Museum Nights happen the second Thursday of each month from 6 to 9 pm. Refreshments are offered and admission is free.


Earth Ethics Ain't Easy

Thursday, November 8, 6 - 9 pm
This evening will be entertaining, while taking on challenging topics on view in The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene. The Harn will ask tough questions like: in the global battle of plants (and porpoises) versus plastics, whose side are we on in our hearts; and whose side are we on in our actions? Activities include tours of the exhibition, discussion boards, art-making and a photo-op. Visitors can meet campus partners including the UF Office of Sustainability and enjoy free food. Additional support for this evening is provided by the UF International Center (Learning without Borders) and the Honors Program.

Check out the Facebook event.

Harn Voices

I love the Harn. The art is so full of poetry its inspiring. I love Museum Nights when we set up a table and invite visitors to sit down with us and do a little creative writing about the art they've seen.
