C3 Program Spaces

C3 Studio

The C3 Studio is a place where your creativity can get messy. A variety of hands-on art-making programs for children and adults take place in this space.

C3 Tech Lab

The Tech Lab is the space where art and technology merge to inspire your creativity. We invite visitors of all ages and skill levels to experiment with and use technology in unique ways to respond to works of art in the Museum's collection and create original artwork. Stop by the Tech Lab during our monthly Late Night event to participate in the Late Night Art Bytes program. Teen programs also take place in this space.

C3 Theater

The C3 Theater is a comfortable space where we host storytellers, performances, and lectures during special events such as First Tuesdays and Late Nights. At times, this space is used to display video installations from the Museum's collection.  Currently, the C3 Theater is featuring International Pop Cinema, a daily film screening that runs concurrently with the International Pop exhibition and brings together a variety of works from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s that are rarely considered alongside one another.
