As of April 5th, the Brower Center is open to the general public for walk-ins with limited capacity (10 people maximum) from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday. We will also be open for our resident organizations to return to their office operations at 25% capacity. The current exhibition on view is Art/Act: Award – Frans Lanting, Into Africa. Please note that you may be asked to wait until space becomes available in the gallery.
DBC’s Conference Center typically hosts approximately 400 events per year, but that is currently not an option given the health concerns over in-person events that can spread COVID-19. Please see our Events Protection Plan to learn about the many new systems we have put into place to ensure safety once the building is allowed to reopen.
Our events team is working remotely and is expanding our knowledge of pandemic risks and how to host events safely once it is possible to do so, including through trainings such as the Event Leadership Institute’s Pandemic On-Site Protocol course.
We are accepting event bookings for later 2021, as well as general inquiries. Please email email@example.com or fill out our online inquiry form for more information.
Host a low-impact, environmentally conscious event in stylish convening spaces that are perfect for a wide range of private and public events including celebrations, conferences, receptions, and meetings.
