Chazen Museum of Art Update on COVID-19 Response

At the Chazen, the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and docents is always our top priority. We are working closely with UW–Madison leadership to make the best decisions for our community as the COVID-19 situation develops. For updates on UW’s COVID-19 response, visit this website

As of this writing, the university campus remains open, though students are being asked to stay home and will resume their classes via alternate delivery starting March 23. 

The situation is changing rapidly, but for now, the Chazen is also open, and offers a quiet, contemplative space that may provide some moments of solace and diversion in this stressful time. To help slow the spread of COVID-19 we are making the following changes: 

Open Hours:
 Beginning March 23, we will move to reduced hours: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (7 days per week). We will continue to operate with regular hours during the university’s spring break, March 14–22

Café Hours:
Beginning Saturday, March 14, the Chazen Café will offer reduced hours from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cancelled public events:
As you may have seen in previous announcements, we have cancelled public and group events from March 14 through April 12. 

We continue to offer art resources online at our website, and we encourage you to let us know how you are doing and what you are thinking, via our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Above all, we want you to stay safe and healthy as the next days and weeks unfold. We will share updates via our website and social media as needed and urge you to stay up to date with the UW–Madison, State of Wisconsin and CDC health resources.
