An Important Update

March 13, 2020

The Colby College Museum of Art continues to monitor the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and to prioritize the safety of our visitors, staff, students, and volunteers.

In an effort to reduce the number of people on campus and slow the transmission of the virus, the Colby Museum will be closed until further notice. Over the coming weeks, we will continue to assess and review options for when we can re-open to the public.

We ask for your understanding as we also cancel or postpone the remainder of our scheduled public programming.

The Museum is following the lead of Colby College, which has announced it will suspend all campus activities and transition students to online learning for the duration of the spring semester.

We understand museums are community spaces, and we appreciate your understanding as we undertake this difficult and carefully considered decision to mitigate the spread of the virus in our community.

We are actively exploring opportunities to engage with you online and through our community partners and ask that you stay connected with us via InstagramFacebook, and Twitter, and our website. We also invite you to view our collection online.
