Tours

Purdue Galleries prepare and present programs for both on-site class visits to the galleries and galleries staff visits to classrooms.

We customize gallery programs to fit each class visit depending on size of group, time constraints, and teachers’ specifications, including tours, hands-on activities, lectures, and workshops.

Hands-on printmaking activities are available for classes and community groups, as well as a presentation on the history and development of printmaking.

Exhibition tours and visits can be arranged by contacting Erika Kvam at (765) 494-3061 or ekvam@purdue.edu.
