As a cautionary measure in response to COVID-19 and to protect our artist community who live and work on site at 18th Street Arts Center, we will close our exhibitions to the public from today until further notice.
All public events at 18th Street have been cancelled through the end of May.
To get your dose of arts and culture at home, we encourage you to follow our Instagram for the latest updates, peruse our fantastic YouTube catalogue of artist lab mini-documentaries, and continue to check our website for new online content under our 18@Home programming.
We will continue to follow public health guidance and will keep you updated.
Stay safe and healthy.
