Re-Opening @ Des Moines Art Center
Jul 7 @ 11:00 am

We are thrilled to reopen our doors to you, our visitors!

In planning for reopening, the health and well-being of visitors, members, students, and staff has been our top priority. The Art Center is taking numerous steps to ensure the safety of its visitors and staff. They include:

Timed, ticketed entry. The Art Center continues to offer free admission for all; however, tickets for entry are required so that proper social distancing within the galleries can be maintained. To ensure visitors are able to enter the museum at their desired time, it is recommended that tickets are reserved online in advance. Reservations can be made by clicking HERE or the button below.

Wayfinding. For the foreseeable future, there is a designated path through the museum, designed to ensure visitors are able to access galleries while maintaining social distancing guidelines. This path will be shared on the Art Center’s website soon and reinforced during visits with on-site signage and graphics.

Cleanliness. Facilities teams have implemented an increased cleaning and sanitizing plan, especially in frequent contact areas and travel paths.

Masks. Art Center staff is required to wear a mask at all times when outside individual offices. Visitors will be required to wear masks while in the Art Center.

A phased approach. While the Art Center galleries are open to the public, for the safety of visitors and staff, all indoor, public programming is currently on hold until the fall. This includes docent-led tours. The Shop at the Art Center and Tangerine at the Art Center are finalizing phased reopening plans beginning in late summer.
