No experience required, just curiosity.

Tips on Attending Arts Events

Here are some general tips for attending arts events:

  • Arrive a few minutes early to find a place to sit if you are attending a lecture or performance.  In some cases (such as certain theatre performances), late admittance is not permitted.
  • Silence your cell phone before the lecture or performance begins
  • If you are going to an art museum or gallery, double-check the hours.  Some museums or galleries are closed to the public on Mondays (or a different weekday).
  • Look up more information about the guest speaker or artist before attending an event by Google searching the name and visiting any relative websites.
  • Some events have paper programs available at the door, which can provide helpful information about the nature of the performance, guest speaker, or artist.
  • Draw on the knowledge and life experience that you may already have and try to make connections with content of the lecture, performance, exhibition, etc.
  • Be open to what the experience has to offer you.
