In order to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19 in the community and to protect our staff and volunteers, effective March 15th we will be closed to the public until further notice.
The loss of income during this period is having a significant impact on our operation, as we move toward digital engagement for our audiences and continue to maintain and care for the historic Old Pathology Building.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to our Annual Fund securely online.
