COVID-19 INFORMATION – LAST UPDATED MARCH 16
Updated: March 16, 2020
McEvoy Foundation for the Arts Galleries to Close Temporarily
Following recommendations from the CDC and public health officials to contain the spread of COVID-19, McEvoy Foundation for the Arts will temporarily close its galleries until further notice.
Though we firmly believe in art’s ability to inspire hope and solace in uncertain times, we believe this is the most responsible course of action for the safety of McEvoy Arts’ visitors, volunteers, staff, and the community at large. We will continue to monitor the situation in the coming weeks to determine whether the closure will be extended and will update all of our available channels with new information as it becomes available.
Our dedicated staff continues to work remotely to bring you programs and stories about McEvoy Arts and the themes and ideas embedded in the McEvoy Family Collection. Feel free to engage with us via our website, social media channels, and emails, where we’ll be sharing stories and media about the artists and curators who shape the conversation at McEvoy Arts so you can #MuseumFromHome. We hope our platforms may be a comforting online space for you in the days ahead.
If you have any questions as circumstances continue to develop, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We remain committed to supporting all our guests and employees during this unprecedented time. We ask that all members of our community practice social distancing measures and follow guidelines set forth by health officials. We wish you and your loved ones the best of health during this critical time. Thank you for your continued support.
