Stop by the Tech Lab during our monthly Late Night event to participate in the Late Night Art Bytes program. Teen programs also take place in this space.

The C3 Theater is a comfortable space where we host storytellers, performances, and lectures during special events such as First Tuesdays and Late Nights. At times, this space is used to display video installations from the Museum's collection.
