Simultaneous Saturdays at Bard Graduate Center
February 24, March 23, and April 20

Enjoy activities for children and adults on Simultaneous Saturdays, named in honor of Sonia Delaunay’s own term for her practice, Simultanism, which describes both her use of bright, contrasting colors and her desire to apply her art to all aspects of life.

Free for all; gallery admission is not required. Space is limited; please reserve tickets in advance.

12:30–2 pm and 2:30–4 pm

Each Simultaneous Saturday includes all of the events above.


Thursday Tours at the Bard Graduate Center

Join a Thursday Tour and explore the Sonia Delaunay: Living Art exhibition with a Bard Graduate Center gallery educator. These tours are not comprehensive studies of the exhibition; rather they offer an opportunity to experience various ways of studying objects alongside BGC students and scholars. Tours last forty minutes and focus on a curated selection of objects. You are invited to stay and explore the rest of the exhibition at your own pace after the tour ends.
