ArtSmart, the Pence Gallery’s fieldtrip for school groups, engages students in exploring the world through hands-on experiences. Students enjoy learning about the art on display with a docent, and put their ideas to work in their own art project. Our artists introduce new concepts, materials, and themes in the visual arts. Choose from four projects designed to stimulate your students’ creativity and connect art to different disciplines.

Ehren Tool does not often offer his cups for sale. He believes that it is more important to carry the message of his work through their distribution and use as ordinary cups.
One June 10th, Tool is offering to donate one cup per visitor at 4 PM. We cannot reserve the cups, and they are only available in person, on a first come, first serve basis. If we have any left over, we will post the information on our website at pencegallery.org.
