Atelier at SBMA

"Atelier" is the French term for "workshop," created as a studio for the imagination and offering its audience an evening of intriguing and occasionally irreverent interactions with art and artists in the Museum's galleries.

Now in its sixth season, Atelier offers 200-400 discerning guests events that are uniquely themed and inspired by the Museum's exhibitions or permanent collection, highlighted by performance, dance, and music; and specialty hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.
