Updated April 1, 2020: Weisman Art Museum (WAM), under the guidance of University of Minnesota leadership and public health officials, at the direction of Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health, is following the current “stay at home” order to help curb transmission of COVID-19. University of Minnesota has closed all major campus venues to the public, systemwide, including WAM. Until further notice, the Weisman will be closed—and all the museum’s scheduled programs, events, and tours are canceled.

Over the next few weeks, we will follow guidance from University leadership to determine when we will be able to re-open the museum to the public. For now, it’s important that we all stay home in order to stay healthy. Until we can meet in person again, we invite you to WAM@Home. In the coming weeks, you’ll find virtual, guided tours through the museum’s galleries; kid-friendly creative activities; video-based conversations with artists and virtual studio visits; essays and profiles, and much more. Keep up to date by checking in on WAM’s website and social media channels!

If an event for which you’ve purchased tickets has been canceled, we will issues refunds as soon as possible. For media inquiries and questions about the museum’s evolving response to COVID-19, contact Susannah Schouweiler, Director of Marketing and Communications: susannah@umn.edu.
