Mask Policy

Help us comply with the Governor’s executive order to slow the spread of Covid-19. Starting on Friday, February 11, masks will be recommended for immunocompromised individuals, those who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination, and anyone who feels more comfortable wearing one. Thank you for supporting us as we continue to present the peace, comfort, and restorative power of artwork in our galleries.

Masks should not be worn by children younger than age two, anyone who has trouble breathing, or anyone who is unable to remove the mask without help. We will follow any future updates from the Governor’s office and make changes to our mask policy in accordance with any new rulings.
