We offer art classes, summer art camps, workshops, lectures, and artist talks. In addition, we have pARTy 318 for young professionals, Studio 318 for our patron members, and the annual Off the Wall fundraiser.

Reviewed 22 July 2014

Definitely a point of interest for the art enthusiast; but, also a great place to learn about various types of art. There are a TON of events offered for the younger audiences, too. The Masur Museum hosts some evening events that would make an awesome date night outing. Party 318 is a must attend event for people of all ages. Museum memberships are available and a great way to have your pic of the array of things to do. The staff is also pretty amazing.
