DeVos Art Museum Temporarily Closing March 16

The health and safety of the community is our highest priority. As such, the museum will close for three weeks beginning on Monday, March 16, so that we can thoroughly and thoughtfully respond to the escalating impact of COVID-19. We plan to reopen the museum on April 4. Museum events—tours, lectures, workshops, etc.—will remain on hiatus through April 3. We recognize that the situation is dynamic—and that the repercussions of the virus could be felt for some time. We will continue to reach out with updates.
