We have paused our exhibition program while we remodel our Marcia and John Price Museum Building and reinstall our permanent galleries. This fall, Creativity in Focus film screenings and ARTLandish programs return to the UMFA's Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium, while the rest of the Marcia and John Price Museum Building remains temporarily closed for remodeling.
The Museum Cafe is open, The Museum Store opens Friday, November 25, and our annual Holiday Market returns to the UMFA Saturday, December 3.
UMFA galleries will reopen to the public August 26, 2017.
Day With(out) Art
Thursday, December 1
Deborah Butterfield's bronze sculpture, Rex (2002), which stands sentry at the entrance of the UMFA, will be covered on December 1 in recognition of Day With(out) Art. Thousands of museums and galleries worldwide will close or remove important artworks from display to honor individual legacies, commemorate personal loss, and increase awareness of the global AIDS epidemic.
This day of reflection coincides with the World Health Organization's World AIDS Day which began twenty-five years ago on December 1, 1989. By covering this remarkable sculpture the UMFA hopes to remind the community that HIV and AIDS have not gone away—there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education.
