The Sackler Center for Arts Education
Opened to the public in fall of 2001, the Sackler Center for Arts Education serves as a dynamic 21st-century education hub and learning laboratory that offers innovative public programs in the visual as well as performing and literary arts. Exploration and experimentation with new technologies is the center's hallmark, which broadens and enriches programs for youth, adults, and families. Artists as well as cultural and academic institutions are valued collaborative partners.
The 8,200-square-foot education facility comprises Studio Art, Computer, and Multimedia Labs, the New Media Theater, an exhibition gallery, the Resource Center, the Conference Room, and education offices. It also includes the existing Peter B. Lewis Theater, part of Frank Lloyd Wright's original architectural design for the building. We welcome the public to the Sackler Center, located just below the rotunda of the landmark Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
For a complete list of current programming, see the calendar.
The Sackler Center for Arts Education is a gift of the Mortimer D. Sackler Family.
