Sioux City Art Center Reopens July 7
The Sioux City Art Center will unlock its doors to the public beginning Tuesday, July 7. The Art Center will be open during its usual times: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
The following safety precautions are being employed:
- The public is not permitted to enter either the Junior League Hands On! Gallery or the Gilchrist Learning Center.
- The public is permitted access only to the first-floor galleries.
- Hand sanitizer stations are installed at both entrances to the Art Center and outside the restrooms.
- Occupancy limits will be enforced within each space.
- Touch surfaces—restrooms, door handles, etc.—will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
- Social distancing between groups will be required and masks will be strongly encouraged. All staff members will wear masks outside of their office spaces.
The Art Center will open a new exhibition on Saturday, July 11. Local Perspectives is a juried exhibition of art by more than 40 artists living in or within 50 miles of Sioux City. The Art Center will create a virtual experience of the exhibition until it determines that the public can safely view the exhibition in person. A reception and awards ceremony will be scheduled later this summer when group activities are safe. Exhibitions in additional second- and third-floor galleries will be opened as safety permits.
The public can find announcements as well as a large amount of content on art projects, exhibitions, and the permanent collection on the Sioux City Art Center’s Facebook page.
The Sioux City Art Center is a model public/private partnership between the City of Sioux City and the Art Center Association of Sioux City.
