The Fleming Museum brings art into the lives of thousands of people each year, offering classes and events for people of all ages. Programs for adults, families, children, and elders include lectures, performance, gallery talks, films, art classes, workshops, symposia, artists' talks, non-credit courses, and outreach programs. By linking the University and community through our programs and collaborating with local arts organizations, the Fleming Museum strengthens the cultural life of our community.
Noontime Café and Programs
UVM and regional scholars speak on topics related to art in the galleries during the academic year. A light lunch is available for purchase in the Museum's Marble Court.
Gallery talks are informal talks given by Museum curators, scholars, and artists that focus on special exhibitions and the permanent galleries.
Community Family Day
Community Family Day is a thematic exploration of the arts featuring performance, artists' demonstrations, and a variety of imaginative art activities for kids and parents to do together.
Children learn traditional Vietnamese
dance at the Moon Lantern Festival.
After-school Art Classes
UVM art education students teach Art Adventures, a series of after-school art classes for children offered each fall.
The Fleming offers programs that reach out to underserved audiences throughout Vermont. Each year, the Museum creates programs for children that link to the Department of Libraries summer reading theme.
Symposia are organized in conjunction with Museum exhibitions, often in partnership with UVM departments and programs. For example, the Museum has hosted an international proverb symposium in conjunction with the exhibition of "The Netherlandish Proverbs by Pieter Brueghel the Younger" and an interdisciplinary conference on the Vermont landscape.
