Community Programs

Artist Lectures, Gallery Talks, and Workshops

As part of the Daum’s exhibition schedule, there are many educational opportunities. Illustrated artist lectures and artist-led gallery talks shed light on the artist’s techniques and theories. Artist workshops give participants a chance to observe artists in action and discuss their work and methods.

Sedalia Day at the Daum

In the spring, the museum invites the public to visit the Daum for a free day of fun. There are guided tours, craft projects geared to all ages and abilities, art-making demonstrations, live music, drawings, and community fellowship.

SFCC Student Art Show

The annual student exhibition, a tradition dating back to the late 1960s, is open to all students currently taking studio art classes at the college. Students collaborate with art faculty to select work that best represents them. Each year, some 50 students exhibit close to 100 artworks in a variety of media. Although every student is guaranteed a spot in the show, an outside juror is invited to designate the top three entries, a purchase award, and honorable mentions. A public reception is held to kick off the exhibit.

Jingle on the Green

Each December, the SFCC Foundation hosts a holiday celebration featuring thousands of luminarias, holiday music performances, themed food and dessert stations, and a free craft-making station in the Daum Museum lobby. It is a wonderful community event that the Daum is thrilled to take part in.

Membership in the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art provides unique opportunities and sustains a lasting artistic legacy for future generations. Members receive exclusive invitations to exhibition previews and social events with featured artists to learn firsthand about their art and discuss art-making processes. Special discounts on museum publications and participation fees are also a benefit for members.
