Planning a Class Visit?

Emerson Contemporary is a platform for creativity and innovation, curricular learning and co-curricular life, civic and cultural engagement. Our educational programs and academic collaborations are designed to build cross-campus community engagement among our various constituents and amplify the gallery’s mission as a teaching gallery.

If you would like to visit our space with your class, let us know. We will gladly schedule a planning meeting to make sure your visit is aligned with your curriculum and tailored to your needs. Classes from other universities and colleges are also encouraged to reach out.
