Glenstone Museum announced that it will reopen its indoor spaces in phases, beginning on April 8 with its presentation in the Gallery of a major international traveling exhibition of the works of Faith Ringgold. The Pavilions will reopen on May 6. These phased reopenings follow a full closure on November 25, 2020 to support the community’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The museum has been operating as an outdoor-only experience since March 4. Scheduled visits will continue to be required while the museum operates in a limited capacity. Visits can be scheduled on the website, www.glenstone.org, and admission is always free. Visits for May and June will be released on April 1 at 10 a.m.
“As much as it meant to us to resume welcoming visitors to our open-air paths and installations of outdoor sculpture, we have longed to connect the public again with the full experience of art, architecture, and nature that we are known for,” said Emily Wei Rales, director and co-founder of Glenstone. “We are grateful that we can soon begin a phased reopening of our indoor spaces, with due precautions in place in accordance with public health and government guidelines. We have been eager to resume our exhibition programming, which includes the extraordinary work of Faith Ringgold and exciting new installations in the Pavilions.”
When it opens on April 8, the Gallery will host the first traveling exhibition that Glenstone has presented: Faith Ringgold, a monographic survey that will include more than 70 works by the artist. The exhibition was organized by the Serpentine in London in 2019 and was installed at the Bildmuseet in Umeå, Sweden, last August.
