ST. LOUIS, March 16, 2020–The Saint Louis Art Museum announced today it will close to the public as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19. The museum was closed today, as it normally is on Mondays.
The museum will remain closed to the public for at least four weeks, although the closure may be extended. The museum will provide updates to this situation on its website and on social media as the situation develops.
MetroTix automatically will refund tickets for the exhibition “Millet and Modern Art: Van Gogh to Dalí,” as well as other ticketed programs and lectures.
“The Art Museum strives to be a contemplative space in times of crisis, but this emergency closure is necessary for the health of our community,” said Brent R. Benjamin, the Barbara B. Taylor Director of the Saint Louis Art Museum. “We look forward to opening again as soon as it is advisable.”
