Performances + Screenings

Programs that bridge disciplines–inviting visitors to deepen awareness and understanding of a sculpture through dance, immerse themselves in the GFS landscape while listening to live music, or further consider an exhibition theme as they view and then discuss a new film–have long served as an integral component of the GFS experience.

Each year, GFS presents a diverse array of performances and screenings. Examples include:

Film For Thought

This popular program features specially curated, thought-provoking selections inspired both by themes explored in current exhibitions and the complex questions and issues facing our communities today. Informal and engaging discussions led by experienced guest moderators immediately follow each film.

Sounds of Summer

Enjoy live melodies under the stars during this series, which features notable up-and-comers and legendary locals and aims to promote and support the exceptional music of the tri-state area.

Summer Cinema

Bring a blanket, grab a snack from the Gazebo, and find a spot on our Great Lawn, where beloved film favorites are screened each summer.
