Caring for Our Visitors and the Museum
The Woodson Art Museum is updating its Covid-19 response.
The well-being of Woodson Art Museum visitors, volunteers, and employees is paramount and this guides our course as we navigate the days ahead.
For virtual sources of diversion and inspiration, consider exploring the Museum’s website for online options and activities for all ages – via the Museum’s Activity Guides, Collection search, Audio Tours page, YouTube channel, pre-visit materials for the French posters and Melissa Sweet exhibitions, and the current exhibitions and past exhibitions webpages.
Updates, when appropriate, will first be posted on the Museum’s website homepage at www.lywam.org as well as shared with local and regional media outlets.
In the days before the closure, the Museum’s ongoing cleaning practices included stepped-up, frequent disinfection of surfaces throughout the day, with heightened attention and focus on high-touch areas and items. Hand sanitizer was available, and signage encouraged all to maintain good personal hygiene, as the Centers for Disease Control advises. We continue to seek to be supportive and proactive in doing our part to contain the virus and are encouraging others to do the same.
To protect all – including collection sculpture in our care – the Tactile Sculpture exhibition was removed and placed in storage temporarily. Once dates are determined for this on-going exhibition, an update will be posted on the exhibition webpage.
