Artful Lunch

Why not take a break and slow down for lunch and a chance to explore life…artfully. Gather with a group of co-workers or friends for an artful lunch experience. During these brief sessions your group has a private in gallery exploration with a Hunter curator. You'll look at one work of art and discuss it as a group in the context of both history and today, exploring the way works of art reflect contemporary issues.

This is a very casual opportunity to just spend a little time in the galleries, reflect on works of art, explore your own ideas about various issues, and get to know your co-workers and friends in a new way. Then, after about 45 minutes in the gallery each day, you can enjoy lunch at a downtown restaurant or can arrange to have a catered or box lunch at the Museum (additional fees apply for museum lunch option).

Artful experiences are also available to your groups in the evening upon request for additional fees.
