Private Events

  • COVID-19 Update--Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed the Museum to the public through at least April 30, and have cancel all programs during this time. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon (and often!), but until then, we encourage you to visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to stay up-to-date about the Museum’s status and enjoy beautiful images, on-line exhibitions, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes videos. Should you need a staff member, call or email them as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends

Weddings, Retreats & Corporate Events

Plan Your Special Event

Located on the banks of the Lieutenant River, the Museum offers a captivating setting for your special event. Come see what drew the American Impressionist artists to paint “en plein air” along the river or in our gardens. You’ll be as charmed as they were by the beauty of the landscape. We can accommodate private parties, weddings, and corporate events for up to 150 guests. Tours of the current exhibition after closing hours may be included by special arrangement. Imagine your gathering held in the very setting that inspired a generation of artists. It will be an event your guests will always remember.
