American Alliance of Museums

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting all facets of our economy, including museums and cultural institutions. The arts can play a role in our recovery by offering opportunities to create and reflect on our experiences. Please take a moment to let your legislators know how much the museums we all share mean to you: https://www.congressweb.com/AAM/67#/67/

Nationwide, our museums are losing at least $33 million per day as a result of #COVID19 related closures—and will be in desperate need of help in the weeks and months to come.

We urge Congress to provide $4 billion in economic relief for museum nonprofits.

Read the full letter:https://www.aam-us.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/3.18.2020-Museum-Community-Economic-Relief-Request-Letter-FINAL.pdf

We are also reaching out to AAM Affiliate, state, and regional partners for their sign-on to this letter.

Fellow #museum advocates: Watch for a forthcoming Alliance Advocacy Alert with more information and an updated template you can use to contact your legislators. 📢

Dear Friends:

In light of the continued developments with COVID-19, the Demuth Foundation is adjusting our response. We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close both the Demuth Museum and Lancaster Museum of Art to the public, effective March 15 through March 30.

As a reminder, next week's Third Thursday Lancaster County Young Artists Gallery Talk has been postponed until April 16. Announcements about our other programs over the next few weeks will be made in the coming days.

While you will not be able to physically visit our museums, staff are strategizing ways to create virtual experiences. Please check out our social media pages and website for special digital content.

We hope you and your loved ones stay healthy, and we look forward to opening our doors again soon. Thank you for your support of our museums.

Dear Community:

Your health and safety are important to us. Out of caution in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are postponing next week's Members' Third Thursday event at the Lancaster Museum of Art. At this time, we are planning to reschedule our Lancaster County Young Artists Gallery Talk to our April Third Thursday on 4/16. In regards to other programs and events in the coming weeks, we will communicate our plans next week as this situation continues to evolve.

Both the Demuth Museum and Lancaster Museum of Art will continue normal operating hours. We will remain vigilant in monitoring and evaluating the situation. Please check our websites and social media for updates before your visit.

As preventative measures, we have increased the frequency of cleaning routines throughout our facilities and posted CDC handwashing guidelines in our restrooms. Hand sanitizer is available at our front desks. Please help us maintain a healthy and safe environment for all visitors by postponing your visit should you feel ill.

With gratitude,

Abby Baer, Executive Director

We have another exciting bus trip excursion planned for this summer! Join us on Friday, May 22, for a trip to the New York Botanical Garden and exclusive KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature Exhibition!

The New York Botanical Garden located in the Bronx, NY, is the largest garden in the United States and is a National Historic Landmark. NYBG encompasses 50 specialty gardens and collections comprising more than one million plants, including the award-winning Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, Native Plant Garden, and 30,000 distinguished trees. NYBG is the exclusive exhibition venue for KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature, a multisensory presentation of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s profound connection with nature. Her artistic concepts of obliteration, infinity, and eternity are inspired by her intimate engagement with the colors and patterns of plants and flowers. This excursion includes a private group tour of the Kusama exhibition, a buffet luncheon at the historic Stone Mill venue catered by Constellation Culinary Catering, and an all-garden pass for access to all NYBG has to offer.

More information and our itinerary is available on our website at demuth.org. Call us at (717) 299-9940 to make your reservation, or sign up on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-york-botanical-garden-and-kusama-cosmic-nature-bus-trip-excursion-tickets-98498590937
