Community Events

The Farnsworth Art Museum holds many community events throughout the year, thanks to the generous support of community and corporate donors and sponsors. These community events are the heart of what we do, and we enjoy bringing new voices to the museum. From First Friday open houses which run June – October, to participating in Rockland’s annual Solstice event and seasonal celebrations and observances, Farnsworth Art Museum works with many community partners to ensure that art is accessible for all people, all backgrounds. See the list of upcoming community events below.
