The Winona Arts Center has been shuttered since late February 2020, due in part to the pandemic and the construction of a new accessible entrance. The WAC Board of Directors is looking forward to welcoming back members and the general community beginning with our grand opening exhibit “Art In the Time of Covid” on September 12,2021. Because we are strong believers in both the Arts and the Sciences, the following Covid-19 policy was agreed to at the WAC Board of Directors 9/2/2021 board meeting:
Winona Arts Center Covid-19 Protocol
To offer the safest environment we are requiring that all who enter the Center wear a mask, unless actively eating or drinking at an event and then at a safe distance from one another. Artists will not be required to wear a mask while rehearsing or on stage.
Further, we are requiring proof of complete vaccination for anyone attending films, concerts, exhibit openings or special events. All performers at the Center are required to be fully vaccinated as well.
If you are not fully vaccinated, but have proof of a negative Covid -19 test within 72 hours of the Center event, that will work too. Proof of vaccinations are not required for viewing exhibits in the gallery during our normal gallery hours, but masks will continue to be required until the CDC changes its guidance. Likewise, if you are using the print studio with others, masks will be required.
Our intent is to keep our members and the community as safe as possible during this time of uncertainty and the increasing spread of the Delta variant. We want to do as much as we can to avoid any further interruption in our programming. We appreciate your understanding and support.
