Currier Museum of ArtClasses at the Currier
The Currier Museum of Art connects art with diverse audiences, from its neighborhood to international and digital visitors, and embraces regional new museum-goers and under-served communities. We facilitate conversations and experiences around art. The Currier Museum aims to be nimble and creative in using its distinctive collection of historical and contemporary art. We connect the art of the past with art of the future through an artist-in-residence program based in our community. The museum teaches art as a way to understand the creative process in all fields – a traditional practice in American museums which we continue to believe is vital to our role.
