Engaging programs. From our family to yours.

The Westmoreland invites families to dive right in and experience American art. We offer a wealth of hands-on programs created to delight, inspire and engage all ages.

Inaugural Tour: Monday, April 6
Tours offered on the first Monday of each month, 10-10:45am
Watch your baby respond to colorful artworks and learn ways to facilitate early visual literacy skills in this lively 45-minute tour! These tours are designed to provide parents, grandparents, or caregivers a shared opportunity to teach and learn about art alongside their infant. Adults will learn to name, describe and share characteristics they see in the art with their infant, actively building the baby’s early sense of visual literacy!
