Plains Art Museum announces the launching of Low Sensory Mondays, a monthly program occurring the first Monday of each month. This program aims to provide neuro-diverse adults and children with the opportunity to experience Plains Art Museum at their own pace and in a less stimulating environment.
Plains Art Museum embraces the unique qualities of all who walk through our doors and appreciates that many visitors need to explore the Museum in different ways. Low Sensory Mondays takes place the first Monday of each month, 2:00 – 5:00 pm, throughout 2019. During this sensory-friendly program, individuals can visit current exhibitions with smaller crowds, controlled sounds, and low-level lighting. At each event a variety of sensory and activity resources are available for use, including social stories, fidget bags, headphones, and activity bags.
Plains Art Museum is general admission free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of our members and donors.
Plains Art Museum is the largest art museum in the Dakotas and Western Minnesota and is general admission free thanks to strong and growing support from over 800 households and businesses. The Museum manages a permanent collection of over 4,000 objects, organizes and presents dozens of annual exhibitions, facilitates public art projects, and leads over 200 educational programs and experiences for all ages each year. The Museum, and its Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity, is located at 704 First Avenue North in downtown Fargo.
