Full Campus

Open House provides a once-a-season opportunity to roam the various buildings of our campus, meet current artists, view works in progress, and attend screenings, performances, and readings. See Camille Roy’s new text for Wall Space in The Commons, and stop by opening receptions for Project Space exhibitions by stop-motion animation master Martha Colburn and French photographer Stéphanie Solinas.

Bring your young explorers and engage in a hands on, creative reuse art activity in the Officer’s Club hosted by our park partner friends at NatureBridge. Grab a Headlands Bingo & Tally activity card and search for items on the list to earn a special prize at the end of your visit.

Enjoy a housemade lunch in the Mess Hall Cafe—Members at the Inspire ($250) level and above receive complimentary lunch for two!
