Current Learning Programs

Esker Foundation provides free public programming to encourage participation and to increase accessibility to contemporary art. Programs are developed in response to our current exhibitions. Securing your spot by registering in advance is strongly recommended. Our programs are very popular and often have wait lists; if you register and are unable to attend we ask that you cancel your registration in a timely manner. Tickets are non-transferrable, if you are unable to attend a program please do not redistribute your ticket. We ask that you cancel your ticket, so it can be offered to the wait list. All programming requires that an adult accompany children under the age of 16.



Sunday, December 9th, 1-2pm > Exhibition Tour: When the mind is untroubled

Shauna Thompson


The exhibitions of Tammi Campbell, Agnes Martin, and Sarah Stevenson are united in an austere formal language of grid and line. However, foundational to these ascetic aesthetics are individual interests in emotion, physicality, and sensuality. Join Esker curator Shauna Thompson on this conversational walking tour that aims to illuminate the nuanced and affecting inspirations behind these three artists’ practices.

Registration recommended.
