Do you have a long-distance-love? Reunite with your loved ones across time and space at the Long-Distance-Love virtual museum tour.

As part of Welcoming Week 2022, Krannert Art Museum invites you to explore themes of love, belonging, loneliness, and migration through artworks at museum. Invite anyone from anywhere in the world; the tour will be held at various times to support loved ones joining us from different time zones. Every virtual tour is held at 7 pm local time in the destination country listed below. 

Let’s gather to celebrate and lament for our long-distance loves–of people, places, and things!


Long-Distance Love tours will be held in English, via Zoom (which may not be available in all countries). 

Registration for each session is capped at 15 participants, to make space for conversation. The tour is 60 minutes long.
