To Supporters of The Branch: 
Due to increasing health concerns in connection with COVID-19, and with concern for our visitors, staff, and our community, The Branch Museum will close to the public March 12 through April 3rd, 2020.  We have also postponed all programs through April, including our Brunch at The Branch, which has been rescheduled for June 5th.  Please continue to check our website and social media outlets for information about our reopening and rescheduled programs.  Thank you for your ongoing support.

“Inner Lives: Cinerary Jars by Julian Stair and Rob Barnard”

An exhibition by ceramics artists Julian Stair and Rob Barnard at the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design from March 3 – 27. “Inner Lives” is a contributing exhibition with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts annual conference in Richmond from March 25-28. CLICK HERE for more information.

Experience “Inner Lives” Virtually!

With The Branch currently closed for a few weeks, we regretted that closure would limit the number of people who could see this wonderful exhibition of ceramic design now in our gallery. Rob Barnard has found a virtual way to share the exhibition with our guests. We hope you will click on this link and enjoy a few moments of peace, beauty and tranquility exploring ceramic design.
