COVID-19 Pandemic Statement & Updates

With much thought and deliberation, The Art Center will be closed to the public until further notice. This was not an easy decision to make. Free and open access to our exhibits and hands on art education are at the core of our mission as an organization. However, during this time, it is because of that mission we prioritize the health and safety of our community first.

We are currently offering online classes for preschool – adults. Check out our EDUCATION page for a list of classes and to register online today. Art Kits will be available for registered students to pick up at The Art Center for them to follow along and create original works of art.

On our social media sites, Facebook, Instagram, & YouTube, The Art Center has art project ideas using household items, art demos, art history facts, and more available for free. We would also love for you to share all the creative projects you are making at home, so tag @quincyartcenter and let’s see how creative we can get!

If visiting The Art Center, please call ahead to schedule an appointment. All visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing of 6ft. Frequently used surfaces are sanitized regularly throughout the day.

If you have any questions or need to get in touch with our staff, please email Administrative Assistant, Amanda Brown, at, or view our staff directory on our website.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Art Center at (217) 223-5900.

Love, The Art Center
