What To Expect

Experience the Crocker's world-renowned collection and diverse exhibitions through discussion and artmaking, and let great art of the past and present inspire your own creative expression. Most classes include at least one gallery visit to view the permanent collection or a special exhibition. The Museum's highly trained staff and instructors are committed to providing students of all experience levels with a supportive and engaging experience. Advance registration required.

Join us for an engaging two-part interactive lecture series exploring the captivating realm of human-machine symbiosis through the innovative work of artist and MIT-trained roboticist Alexander Reben. For millennia, civilizations have employed art to express power structures, spirituality, and cultural foundations. Today, we stand at a new threshold as artificial intelligence redefines the creative landscape. 

Reben's exhibition at the Crocker, AI Am I? Artificial Intelligence as Generated by Alexander Reben, illuminates the potential of AI in the arts, drawing on Marshall McLuhan's concept of art as a "Distant Early Warning System" for cultural shifts. As AI's ability to create "art" takes the spotlight, what transformations await our culture? Bring your insights and questions to this thought-provoking lecture series and prepare to consider the future of art's role in shaping our world.
