About the Offsite Art Sonje Program
The Art Sonje Center initiates the Offsite Art Sonje Program in January 2016 to continue the museum’s educational role and extend its program venue while the Center is temporarily closed for renovation. Located near the Center, the Offsite Art Sonje hosts talk events on the last Wednesday of each month until the Center reopens in the fall. Its large window wall permits passersby to peer inside the space, blurring the line between inside and outside. The Offsite Art Sonje Program hopes to offer unique and meaningful experiences of museum programs to both the participants and the onlookers.
