ArtBreak at Levine Center For The Arts

TAKE AN ARTBREAK & TOUR A MUSEUM DURING THE NOON HOUR

ArtBreak tours are free, 30-minute guided tours each third Thursday of the month at Mint Museum Uptown, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, and the Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture.

Whether it’s an introductory experience for a first-time visitor or a deeper cultural experience for those already familiar with Levine Center for the Arts institutions, the 30 minute tours will provide a brief but focused encounter with art with people who have a limited amount of time—and will allow time to grab lunch as well.

Note: during the months of July, August, and September, Mint Museum Uptown ArtBreak tours will be conducted outside and will feature sculptures in the immediate Uptown area:

  • “Spiral Odyssey” by Richard Hunt (Romare Bearden Park)
  • “El Caballo” and “El Toro” by Spanish artist Jesus Sanchez
  • “The Green” by Carolyn Braaksma

Visitors can choose one of the three museums for each date, and experience a tour structured around a common theme reflecting the nature of permanent collections or special exhibitions on view. (Each theme lasts for three months—enough to experience all three institutions!)
