COVID-19 Guidance

March 12, 2020

Please note that Harvard University is monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. We ask you to review the University’s latest policies and procedures. The health, safety, and well-being of our community, on and off campus, is our top priority.

In the interests of reducing the number of people on campus and slowing the opportunity for transmission, the university museums and galleries, including the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, are closing to the public, at the end of business on Thursday, March 12 until further notice. This is in alignment with the closing of many other Boston-area public museums.

Over the next few weeks we will be assessing the situation and reviewing options for when we will be able to re-open to the public. Please continue to check our website and social media for updates.

This decision has been carefully considered, as we know museums and galleries are community spaces. Please check back with us as we devise other ways to share our current exhibition, Tony Cokes: If UR Reading This It's 2 Late: Vol. 2.

We appreciate your understanding as we do our part to mitigate the spread of the virus in our community. In this we are following the lead of Harvard University, which is transitioning to remote learning and asking students not to return to campus following Spring Recess.
