Phoenix Art Museum will keep its physical doors closed through the end of this month because of the spread of COVID-19 around the state.

The museum at 1625 N. Central Ave. recently said it was prioritizing its dedication to the health and well-being of the community and its staff members. It is continuing to monitor the recommendations of state public health officials and is aiming to open the museum to members on Thursday, Oct. 1 and to the general public on Wednesday, Oct. 14. However, Phoenix Art Museum will continue to provide weekly its bilingual blog, as well as virtual gallery tours, lectures, visits and educational events.

The museum has created a comprehensive plan to try to decrease the risk of infection for visitors and employees when it reopens physically. This plan includes limiting the number of visitors allowed inside each day and requiring staff members and guests to wear masks.

In light of the closure, the museum will provide an extension on all annual memberships and will extend some exhibitions impacted by the shutdown.
