Slow down, kindle your creativity, and activate your senses in this small-group experience in the Gardner Museum’s galleries and gardens. Incorporating movement, wordplay, and art-making, this exclusive ArtWeek program is presented in connection with the groundbreaking new exhibition, Listen Hear: The Art of Sound. After the program, participants are invited to learn about sound art in a “Listening Session” presented by Ernst Karel, a featured artist in the exhibition.

Led by Jessie Smith, Gardner Museum Director of Public Programs, this is a participatory, social, small-group workshop. Participants will cultivate personal connections with works of art in a creative, multi-sensory format.

Listening Session begins at 3:30pm. Includes admission to the Gardner Museum and a ticket to the Listening Session program. Availability is limited, so participants must register in advance. This program is designed for participants ages 12 and up.


Listen Hear: The Art of Sound has received generous support from the Boston Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Barr Foundation. The exhibition also is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which receives funding from the State of Massachusetts and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as by the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administrated by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture. Additional support is provided by Goethe-Institut Boston, Northeastern University, Haley House, Emerald Necklace Conservancy. Media Sponsor: WBUR
