We love to see students drawing, writing and learning in our galleries; however, please check with the front desk regarding what materials are acceptable. We ask you to store backpacks, umbrellas and large purses in our free lockers, and that you use pencils rather than pens.

Food and beverages may be enjoyed in our lobby, but not in our galleries.
