The Museum is partnering with the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at the University of South Florida (OLLI-USF) to present engaging lectures to a curious public. OLLI-USF’s mission is to provide intellectual stimulation to a diverse and growing community of learners over the age of 50. We embrace the opportunity to partner with this dynamic community organization to present lectures and lecture series that explore the arts within the Museum’s walls and beyond.

Lectures are located in the Dickey Family Lecture Hall at the Museum, unless otherwise noted. Registration rates will vary and may require OLLI or Museum membership. Check the calendar for details about upcoming lectures.
