Institute of Hearts

Share the love this Valentine’s season by leaving your heart with the art at Mia.

From Sunday, February 10, through Friday, February 15, museum visitors will be handed a paper heart valentine to place in front of their favorite masterpiece in the galleries. Let the world know which artwork takes your breath away by sharing on social media with @artsmia #MiaHearts, or keep your choice to yourself as a secret admirer.

New this year, Free Open Studios!
After visiting the galleries and showing love to your favorite works of art, bring your inspiration into the studios for hands-on art making. Make your own heart screen prints from 1-3 p.m., Tuesday, February 12 – Friday, February 15.

And on Thursday, February 14, from 4-6 p.m., grab a Happy Hour beverage from our Agra Culture Cafe and bring it to the studios to make a heart for someone special, or turn some love inward and write yourself a love letter.
