Afterschool art classes have also been put on hold, museum officials say.

“I believe that over the years, the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art has been a leader in showing that art makes us learn about the world, helps heal and keep us healthy, while bringing families and friends together,” said Dane Pollei, Director of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art.

“We are being cautious and will work to share the museum with you virtually during this closed time frame. The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is fortunate to have an incredibly talented staff and an amazing collection. We will be meeting, within a respectful physical and electronic distance to find ways to continue to serve you, our community.” he continued.
