11:00AM – Private Tour of Weather

1:00PM – Lunch TBD “dutch treat”




A special tour and conversation with Richard Klein, the charismatic and brainy curator of Weather Report. In this captivating exhibition, 21 artists and three researchers explore the ways that atmosphere has influenced visual culture in the 21st century. Weather Report reveals the sky as a site where the aesthetic, the romantic, the political, the social, and the scientific co-exist and inform one another. The depiction of weather phenomena in the visual arts is traditionally linked with either landscape painting or photography, but in the last two decades, artists have increasingly turned to other media to explore weather and, by extension, the larger subject of the Earth’s atmosphere. The range of ways in which these artists depict weather phenomena is remarkable.


All entrances and public areas of the Museum are wheelchair accessible. An elevator is located on the ground floor. The Museum is ADA compliant including accessible bathrooms, large-print text, and qualifies as a low stim space.
