MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Muscatine Art Center will reopen their doors to the public on Tuesday, June 9, according to Melanie Alexander, Director of the Muscatine Art Center. The facility has been closed to the public since March 17, 2020, due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Visitors to the Muscatine Art Center are asked to enter through the main door off of Mulberry Street so that they can be welcomed at the front desk. Individuals who need wheelchair accessible entry from the Stanley Gallery parking lot may call (563) 263-8282 for assistance and directions.

Visitors are also asked to wear a mask during their visit to the Art Center and observe social distancing guidelines (physical distancing of six feet). Hand sanitizer is provided at the entrance and at various other locations throughout the facility with visitors asked to sanitize their hands when they enter the facility.

Art Center staff will monitor the number of visitors in each area of the facility. Patrons are asked to be prepared to be directed to a specific location or asked to wait before moving into an area that already has many visitors.

The “Learn to Look” family gallery will remain closed for the immediate future. In addition, classes for children and families will continue to be offered online only.

For the health and safety of all, the Art Center reserves the right to ask those who refuse to follow the guidelines to leave.

To accommodate sanitizing efforts, the Art Center will limit public hours to 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The Muscatine Art Center will continue to bring art to the public through social media, and encourage those interested to follow the Art Center on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You can also visit the Muscatine Art Center website and sign up to receive the Art Center newsletter by email if you already do so.

For more information call the Art Center at (563) 264-8282.
