Galleries Reopening & Community Expectations

The Arts Club will reopen on July 7th to visitors in the galleries, with the following updated policies:

  • The galleries are open with altered hours of operation.
  • All visitors and staff are required to wear a mask.
  • Staff will perform no-touch temperature checks on all visitors to the galleries.
  • Visitors are asked to maintain social distance while viewing the exhibitions.

Our top priority is and always has been the safety of our community. We are reopening The Arts Club’s galleries with increased safety and low-contact measures in order to ensure a positive viewing experience for all. By our minimalist design, The Arts Club is fortunate to have ample space to allow viewers to roam and experience our exhibitions while maintaining social distance.

In addition to our regular maintenance routine, The Arts Club galleries will be unavailable to viewers from 1pm – 2pm each day for sanitization of entryways and high-touch surfaces. Sanitization stations will be available throughout the building for visitors to use.

All visitors and staff are required to wear a mask while viewing art in the galleries or using the facilities, except while dining. Visitors without a mask will be provided with one at entry. We are putting this policy in place under the guidance of the CDC as an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Further, staff members will take no-touch temperature readings of all visitors upon entry. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and visit our website to experience the exhibitions and programs online.

The Arts Club will reopen with modified hours on July 7th, 2020. Please continue to check the website or email information@artsclubchicago.org for updated hours. For the week of July 7–11, they are as follows:

Tuesday–Friday 10 am–1 pm | 2 pm – 6pm
Saturday 11 am–3 pm

The Arts Club will not allow visitors between the hours of 1 pm and 2 pm on weekdays to allow for mid-day sanitization.
