SAM honors educators as part of the public Community Celebration for Figuring History: Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas. We invite K-12 educators, teaching artists, and other arts education advocates to explore the new special exhibition, pick up free classroom resources, and get creative with hands-on art activities. Enjoy an evening mingling with peers over complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres. Admission to the special exhibition and SAM galleries is free.
This event is open to educators of all levels and subjects. RSVP is helpful, not required—we look forward to seeing you there!
Free with RSVP.
