We're OPEN!
It has been wonderful to have visitors back at Maryhill! We are now open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Come explore the galleries, the outdoor sculpture garden and interpretative sites
We are working hard to keep visitors safe! Timed-entry tickets are required and limit the number of visitors in the museum at any one time. Masks are also required; click here to read more about our procedures, policies and Covid-19 protocols.

Thank you to everyone who participated and donated during our first virtual fundraiser. If you were not able to join us, you can still see the program and hear from those who have been touched by Maryhill and its programs over the years. There's still time to donate and help reach our goal of $70,000; to date, we've received just under $50,000 from donors all across the US and beyond. CLICK HERE to watch the program or make a donation today.
SLOW ART DAY (virtual program)
Saturday, April 10, 2021 | 10:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

Join us online for a free-flowing conversation centered on finished works and fragments by sculptor Auguste Rodin, which are all part of the museum's collection. We'll not only focus on what we see, but what meaning we derive from looking. The goal is to focus on the art…and the art of seeing! This experience will be led by Maryhill Museum of Art’s Curator of Education, Louise Palermo.
POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY (virtual program)
Thursday, April 22, 2021 | 2 p.m.
Ekphrastic means “art inspired by art.” This day is about combining the art of language with the visual arts. To celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day, we’ll come together virtually to share and create poems that connect to artwork at Maryhill Museum of Art. Explore some of the works in Maryhill's collection here. The online experience will be led by Maryhill Museum of Art’s Curator of Education, Louise Palermo.
DRAWING THE LANDSCAPE (in-person program)
Tuesdays, May 4 - June 8, 2021 | 10 a.m. to noon
Take your drawing skills to the next level by exploring light and shade, vegetation and architecture, and the beautiful rock and cloud formations of the Columbia River Gorge. This six-week class will be held outdoors on the grounds of Maryhill Museum of Art, keeping your safety in highest priority. Taught by nationally recognized artist, Christopher W. Pothier. All skill levels welcome.

Cost: $215 museum members / $235 non-members

NOTE: Fee does not include supplies. A supply list will be emailed from the instructor after registration.

Each year, Maryhill showcases teacher talent by inviting educators to participate in Teachers as Artists, a juried exhibition in the museum’s MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center. In 2021 we invited regional arts educators to submit work around the theme Connections, to bring a focus to people, places, or things that have connected our lives during the past year. Teachers As Artists features artwork in a variety of media by 21 arts educators from Washington. The exhibition is on view at the museum through April 25, 2021. You can also view Connections — Teachers as Artists online here.
The exhibition was juried by Dylan McManus, Dean of Library and Learning Commons at Columbia Gorge Community College and a nationally recognized printmaker. The exhibition is presented in partnership with Washington Art Education Association and Tacoma Museum of Art.
Explore our special exhibitions, on view through November 15, 2021!
