We have made the difficult decision out of an abundance of caution and in consultation with local, state, and federal experts and authorities to cancel the Artist Talk with Ann Hamilton
, scheduled for Thursday, March 19
. While disappointing to all of us, this action is consistent with decisions being made around a number of community and university events in response to COVID-19 virus concerns. We are confident this is the right decision. Our highest priority remains the health and safety of our community.
Thank you so much for your support of this decision. Please know we appreciate your continued enthusiasm and partnership surrounding the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
