Out of concern for the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers, and the potential spread of COVID-19 in our city and region, the Saint Louis Art Museum will be closed for at least four weeks beginning March 16.
"Out of concern for the health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers, and in response to recent announcements from Mayor Lyda Krewson and County Executive Sam Page, the Art Museum is suspending all public programs and tours through April 30. This suspension begins on Sunday, March 15 at 5 pm. Art Museum galleries and exhibitions will remain open during regularly scheduled public hours. Canceled programs include gallery talks, docent-led tours, Member events, lectures, SLAM Underground and Family Sundays."
This year’s concert, “Songs of Hope,” featured both adult and young singers and musicians from six faith communities – including Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist vocal ensembles from across the metropolitan area who will share their songs and music of hope. Also featured was celebrated soprano Christine Brewer, who performed new music by composer and clarinetist Stephanie Berg that was recently premiered at Powell Symphony Hall, and a specially-assembled Interfaith Youth Chorus led by Maria Ellis.
