Dear friends,

With regret, the Princeton University Art Museum temporarily closed its doors to visitors at 5 p.m., Sunday, March 15. We did so out of concern for health and safety and reducing density on the Princeton University campus and to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19.
Our satellite gallery space, Art@Bainbridge, and both Museum Store locations are also closed to visitors.
For those of us who live and work in the world of art, it is indeed a profoundly sad thing to lose contact with great works of art in the original. Normalcy will return, but even now there are things we can do to remain a community who cares about the value of the arts and humanities in our lives:

We hope this closure to visitors proves to be of short duration, and we will write again as soon as we are able to reopen. In the meantime, Princeton University will continue to share coronavirus response updates here.
We remain hard at work shaping powerful experiences of art for you, and look forward to sharing more information and ideas with you soon.
