Trained docents lead interactive group tours of CAC exhibitions, connecting art to classroom curricula via a playful, multi-sensory introduction to contemporary art.

Exhibition and Architecture Tours

All in-person tours are canceled until further notice due to Covid-19 health precautions. Virtual tours for school groups will be offered during the 2020-2021 school year. Please contact to schedule.

Contemporary art engages students by drawing from the life, issues, and images surrounding them today. Exhibitions at the CAC give students both the opportunity to holdthe everyday up for examination and experience the extraordinary. These one hour tours engage students in critical thinking about the world around them and the art of today using an inquiry-based approach. Education staff and docents work with teachers to design tours that are age appropriate and fulfil curriculum needs.

Please contact the education department at least three weeks in advance with a few dates in mind to schedule a tour. Information:
