Tuning the Room Calendar

Anna Craycroft has designed Tuning the Room as an experimental tool for the Otis College Community to use as a resource to hold classes, workshops, and educational gatherings. The installation invites explorations of behavior, voices, the transfer of knowledge, and the systems we use to measure and analyze these ineffable experiences.

HOW TO RESERVE  We invite the Otis Community to visit the space before making reservation. Anna Craycroft and the Gallery Staff are available to consult and help facilitate interesting ways to engage with the installation that fit with curricular and group needs. The space is open to reserve during gallery hours Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm. After-hours and weekend times may be available upon request. Check calendar below for open dates and times.

To start reservation process, email galleryinfo@otis.edu and please include: name, contact information, date and times preferred, name of class or title of event, number of people, and short description of activity. You will receive a reply with more information, any questions, and confirmation of reservation.

RULES OF USE  A full list of guidelines will be sent in response to reservations. Classes and groups are welcome to bring in materials and use the gallery as a site for production during reserved time, but must take all materials and artwork out when done and return the space to its original state. Be advised that reserved times are not entirely private during public gallery hours, Tue-Fri, 10am-5pm / Sat-Sun, 12-4pm. The public may come in while classes and activities are in progress.
