COVID-19 Pandemic Statement & Updates

With much thought and deliberation, The Art Center will be closing now through April 30. 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. This closure includes all classes, studio access, exhibit access, and our upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Art Crawl.

To help Quarantined Quincy get through this time, we will be offering art project ideas using household items, art demos, art history facts, and more on our social media sites, Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter, as well as our website 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 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.

We hope everyone has a safe and creative quarantine,

Love, The Art Center
