Summer Solstice: Centering in on the Sun

/ Art News - Collections - Slideshows

Once June arrives in Alabama, it might feel like summer, with school-free days and sweltering heat, has already started. However, the season does not officially begin until June 21, the longest day of the year. For this Summer Solstice, the BMA is celebrating the lasting brightness with sunshine found throughout our galleries.

If you ever need an escape from the sizzling sun, the Birmingham Museum of Art is the perfect place to have some free summer fun! Check out our events calendar and plan your visit today!
