On the first or second Thursday of each month, from 6:00-9:00PM, the museum hosts a social gathering for adults interested in art or in meeting those who are. The event is free for museum members, $15.00 for non-members. Admission price includes all the current exhibitions, artists' talks, films in the new cinema, Speed Dating, and other Fun Stuff.
