The Anticipated Art Exhibition is Open
The Mississippi Museum of Art reopened on July 1 after temporarily closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum will be opening with an initial members-only period and will then open to the general public on July 8, 2020. First responders and essential workers will be allowed free admission throughout the exhibition.
“All of us at the Mississippi Museum of Art have eagerly anticipated opening our doors, and we are happy to announce that Van Gogh, Monet, Degas & Their Times will open this month. As an added bonus, the exhibition has been extended through January 10, 2021,” said Director of the Mississippi Museum of Art Betsy Bradley.
Of course, the health of museum visitors will remain a top priority. Bradley adds, “As we open to the general public to view these rare and beautiful works of art, we have applied protocols for cleanliness, sanitization, and safety. MMA will require advance timed-ticketing, social distancing, and masks, so our visitors can enjoy the exhibit worry-free.”
While entrance to the Museum is free, there will be an admission charge for Van Gogh, Monet, Degas, and Their Times: $15 per person; $13 for seniors and groups of ten or more; $10 for college students with school identification. Admission is free for Museum members and children five and under.
