The Gardner Museum and Urbanity Dance partner up for an evening focused on art and movement. Enjoy performances created specifically for aerial view, be inspired by the rich history of dance at the Gardner, and get creative in the studio.

There will be three 35 minute dance performances in Calderwood Hall; at 6 pm, 7 pm, and 8 pm. Seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Cash bar around the Courtyard. Café G open for snacks, dinner, and drinks.

A few suggestions for the evening:

  • Plan ahead! Please leave large bags at home.
  • Keep it intimate! Due to the nature of the collection and the high attendance, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or more at Third Thursdays.

Studio activities during Third Thursdays are generously sponsored by Linda N. Cabot and Ed Anderson. The program is supported in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which receives support from the State of Massachusetts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
