Our Gallery exhibitions are organized with leading scholars, curators, and institutions worldwide, and showcase a rich array of objects, many exhibited in New York City for the first time. Our unique focus on objects as windows into the past provides a critical framework for understanding the contexts in which historical and contemporary objects were made, used, collected, and displayed.

On the second Sunday of each month, Bard Graduate Center Gallery hosts a family-friendly open house. Inspired by the exhibitions currently on view, educator-led Gallery explorations, discussions, and hands-on workshops are designed to foster creative exchange between children and their adult partners. Bring a picnic lunch, and spend some time outside in Central Park after your visit!

Second Sundays is a monthly program that takes place from 11am-4pm. Admission to the Gallery is free. Hands-on workshops are $20 per family.
