Why is McEvoy Arts closing?

The closing of the space and the foundation represents a pragmatic business decision by the McEvoy family after nearly six years of providing philanthropic support. 

What will happen to the art following the closure?

While McEvoy Arts has been the primary presenter of artworks from the McEvoy Family Collection since 2017, the collection is owned by and will remain with the McEvoy family. Works from the collection will travel, as before, to select exhibitions.

I am a newsletter subscriber. What will happen to my data?

We do not sell or otherwise share your contact information. Subscriber’s data will be deleted.

What will happen to McEvoy Arts’ online content?

The website and social media platforms will shut down by the end of 2023. Until then, we invite you to visit and explore McEvoy Arts’ Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts for a look back on six-years of programming. A copy of the website will remain accessible via the Internet Archive
