General Adult Audiences

Throughout the year, PAFA offers programs that explore the content, history, criticism and interpretation of art. Series programs - like Art at Lunch and PAFA After Dark - take a multidisciplinary approach to arts and culture and allow members and visitors alike to explore a broad array of topics.

Special exhibitions are accompanied by programs that encourage deeper exploration of themes and ideas currently on view. By providing guided tours, lectures, scholarly symposia, concerts, panel discussions and film screenings, we aim to provide something to inspire all types of learners. We hope you'll join us.
