An Exciting Time of Change: Building a Better Museum
SBMA is in the midst of a renovation that will result in an increase in gallery and public space, enabling the Museum to showcase more of its permanent collection, welcome more visitors, and offer enhanced education spaces for school groups, families, and teachers. During this process, selected galleries and entrances will be closed intermittently, so please check the Museum website for updates. To make sure your educational experience is as rich as possible, there are several new ways to see and make art in alternate spaces in the Museum, art studio spaces at the Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House, and out in the community. SBMA continues to build online resources and offer new learning opportunities, special programs, workshops, and events for educators while the building the transformed. Throughout this critical project that will safeguard and preserve the collection and ensure the safety of visitors and staff, the Museum is committed to remaining open, and, as always, extends the warmest welcome for teachers and students!
