Out of an abundance of caution, CMCA has temporarily closed its building to the public to help the city and state in their efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and community.

Our staff is working regular weekly hours, so the best way to reach us via email.

You can continue to stay connected to our exhibition and education programs remotely with a Virtual Tour of our Biennial exhibition, Art Lab art instruction videos, Lunch/Break Curatorial Tours and Artist Toolbox professional development offerings.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we are able.

Welcome! We Look Forward to Your Visit.

Enjoy the enriching experience of viewing art in CMCA’s spacious galleries and relaxing in our open, public courtyard. To ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all, we ask that you observe the following guidelines:

  • Please refrain from visiting if you have a cough or fever
  • Wear a mask or face covering at all times (ages 5+)
  • Keep at least 6 ft from anyone outside the party you are visiting with
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering and at stations throughout your visit

Thank you for your cooperation.

Gallery attendants and front desk staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about CMCA’s COVID-19 protocols—or the art!
