AGG welcomes learners of all ages and stages for facilitated exhibition tours and lively discussion. Tours are ideal for teachers looking for a field trip to complement in-class learning or community groups interested learning more about visual literacy and contemporary art.
The gallery’s tour programs deliver a unique opportunity to learn from exposure to original works of art within the gallery context, providing an enriching educational and community building experiences, while promoting the enjoyment and understanding of artistic practices and contemporary culture. From January through May 2023, AGG’s exhibitions explore the intersection of visual culture and social movements in support of equity, justice, and democratic participation. Featuring artwork that exists both in the material world of streets and squares, as well as virtual platforms used for globalized mobilization, both carry rich substance and significance in 21st century activism.
