Although the Burchfield Penney is closed to onsite visitors, we're excited to bring you online programs. They include home-education projects, conversations about our exhibitions and collections, artist interviews and more. Look for new posts each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with activities for the whole family. Thank you for staying in touch while staying at home. And until we can all be together again, stay safe.
