Third Thursday Talks
Third Thursday Talks is a virtual program where we feature artists, curators, performers, musicians and more. See below for our upcoming talks.

Third Thursday Talks are made possible with the generous support from the Marjorie and Glenn Thomas Memorial Fund.

Slow Art Sunday
Join us on the second Sunday of the month for Slow Art Sunday, a free in-person tour of our current exhibitions. What does slow art mean? Slow down, look closely at art, and talk about the experience with others.

Slow Art Walk is supported by the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside. The Gluck Fellows Program is made possible by the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation.

Curators and artists periodically lead exclusive tours of current exhibitions at our exhibition openings and on select dates.
