Description

The KMA is happy to welcome families in a safe and fun way. When you sign up online for a time slot time to visit the KMA, add a reservation to the Learning Center for the same time block as your Museum tickets. A maximum of two families can work in the room at a time. One Learning Center reservation is good for a family of up to four, you do not need to make a reservation for each person in your group. This spring, dive deep into the genre of still life in our Learning Center’s interactive Still Life Studio. Learn about what makes a still life and why such an old art form continues to inspire contemporary artists. Discover an unexpected paper-built still life installation by artist Daniel Gordon. Objects will be available to set up your own still life arrangement with various art materials to create unique still life artworks. Upon your arrival at the Museum, young visitors will receive an interactive family guide and activity pack at the front desk which will lead them through the Still/Live exhibition in the galleries. The Museum and Learning Center will be cleaned between each group of visitors. Don’t forget the beauty of the Sculpture Garden where you can sit for a while at socially distanced tables and chairs and create your artwork outside. Members and children under 12 are always free. Masks are required for anyone over 2 years old.

Katonah Museum of Art
Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. Our Learning Center is the only interactive space in Westchester County where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Our outreach programs for the local Hispanic immigrant population are at the forefront of community-based education programs. The KMA works intensively with schools and service organizations to develop literacy and assimilation skills among this population.  Annual attendance is approximately 25,000 people.

The Katonah Museum of Art's programs are made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government, as well as by The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
