We’re open late on Thursday nights! Starting in November, our very own Café G will transform into a bar, serving beer, wine, and bar bites. Grab a drink, unwind with a friend, and soak in the beauty of the Gardner. Enjoy curated live music and DJ performances, interactive activities, and surprise gallery experiences brought to you by local artists and visionaries—you and your friends won’t want to miss it!
Thursdays Live is our new music series highlighting a mix of R&B, soul, spoken word, and hip-hop music featuring local and nationally renowned artists. Experience their talents up close and personal in the Museum’s Calderwood Hall—a literal “sonic cube” that creates a totally unique musical encounter not to be missed.
The Larger Conversation
A gutsy series that connects current issues with Isabella's story and collection. Join us select Thursday nights for The Larger Conversation and discover fresh perspectives from artists and innovators from Boston and beyond. Informal and intimate, these discussions explore the intersection of creativity, lived experience, and social justice.
It's a party every third Thursday! One of our most popular, long-standing offerings, each Third Thursday features food and wine, live music in the Courtyard and gallery spaces, interactive activities, and multidisciplinary art experiences built around a new theme each month.
