Programs for Adults

Programs For Adults

Gilcrease Museum offers a variety of educational programs as well as fun events for adults. With exhibition lectures, films, live performances and art classes, we have something for everyone. Art courses, demonstrations, lectures, and music performances are offered throughout the year. Many of these programs are designed to complement an exhibition. Please see our Events Calendar for specific dates and times.


Sunday Matinee Films are shown each month at 1:30 p.m. in the Tom Gilcrease Jr. Auditorium. Both documentary and feature films focus on an aspect of the permanent collection or a special traveling exhibition.

Gallery Talks

Informal walk-and-talk gallery programs offer audiences a chance to dialogue with speakers.


From My Point of View programs offer perspectives of museum staff and other experts on objects or ideas inspired by the museum’s permanent collection. Special exhibition lectures provide insight into traveling art and history collections.

Live Performance

These programs take a variety of forms including theatre, living history presentations, musical ensembles, symposia, and dance companies.


The Gillies present informative formal lecture programs that enhance a visitors’ visit to the museum’s galleries.

Open Studio for Adult Artists

Local artists are invited to attend an open session facilitated by a consulting artist. The artist will be on hand to oversee a directed experience. Participants should bring their own supplies. There is no charge to drop in and work. These open studios are held several times a month at the Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education in the downtown Brady Arts District. Check our Events Calendar for dates and times.
