This elegant setting is well suited for seminars, lectures, film screenings, wine tastings, business networking events, staff/client appreciation, receptions, retirement parties, staff parties, training sessions and workshops.

Add further inspiration to your event by including an informal visit to our current exhibitions in your itinerary, or ask about our tours and specialized visual arts and creativity programming. Room rentals include admission to the exhibition spaces.
