Museum Programs

Through the presentation of compelling exhibitions and programs to our diverse audiences, we foster the transformative power of art. With more than 200 programs and events and over 30,000 visitors annually, Jule Collins Smith Museum is one of the leading art museums in the state.

The Café

Enjoy a casual lunch in a beautiful setting! The Museum Café serves lunch from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM Tuesday through Friday. The menu, which changes weekly, consists of light, freshly prepared salads, Italian Panini sandwiches and seasonal soups and entrees. We look forward to welcoming you!
