Sacramento's Crocker Art Museum is far more than a place to see art, it's a place to learn and create art, as well as celebrate artists in the community. While the Crocker would normally be hosting the region's largest Black History Month event, the Covid-19 pandemic caused its cancellation, but the organization's mission remains as important as ever.
The Crocker Art Museum's director of education, Stacey Shelnut-Hendrick, is on this week's episode of the Visit Sacramento Podcast to share why art education is so important, the role the Crocker Art Museum plays in that, and how the Covid-19 pandemic has brought on a reset that's allowed her and her staff to adjust how they approach arts education going forward.
