To honor Martin Luther King, Jr., the Museum will be open on a special Monday and offer free admission to all on Monday, January 21.

Adults, children, and families are all invited to visit the New Britain Museum of American Art and take part in a variety of insightful educational offerings, as we recognize this national day of Service. Join our knowledgeable docents for a Gallery Talk focusing on African-American artists Titus Kaphar and Radcliffe Bailey at 1 p.m.

At 2 p.m., visit the LeWitt Family Staircase for a performance of traditional spirituals by the Main Street Children’s Choir. Afterward, guests are invited share their responses to the famous MLK quote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

Drop in art activities all day, including the Art Carts! Catch recent MacArthur Fellow Titus Kaphar’s TED Talk, Can Art Amend History, streaming all day.
