Below are samples of tours that we offer for school groups:
Charles E. Burchfield
The Burchfield Penney Art Center has three galleries permanently dedicated to the art of Charles E. Burchfield, in addition to a reproduction of his studio. This is an in-depth tour for your students to study our namesake.
Architectural and Green Building Tour
The Burchfield Penney Art Center was the first “green” museum in New York State. It was also the last building designed by noted architect Charles Gwathmey. This tour will focus on the architectural and environmental features of our LEED Silver building.
The museum - which is fully accessible - offers tours and hands-on art activities for individuals and students with visual impairment. Using various methods, including touch tours and storytelling, docents create a unique experience for these students.
