Asheville Art Museum closes until further notice

Press release from the Asheville Art Museum:

Due to concerns related to the coronavirus, we have determined that we must close the Asheville Art Museum as of March 16, until further notice. All programs and events will also be postponed until we can safely resume public operations.

Current tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates (TBD). Once new dates are determined, you will be contacted regarding ticket exchange coordination. Event ticket holders can email, and program ticket holders can email with any questions. We ask for your patience during this time and greatly appreciate your support.

We will continue to monitor and assess all developments. The health and safety of visitors, Members, staff, volunteers, and the community will always take top priority in all of the decisions we make relating to the COVID-19. However, this unfortunate reality also comes with a significant economic impact to arts organizations such as ours. Please consider supporting us in mitigating the losses we may suffer as a result from the virus with a tax-deductible donation to the Asheville Art Museum.

Please refer to our website and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for additional updates and ways to engage with the Museum during these unprecedented times.
