WAAM Announcement on COVID-19

March 31, 2020


Recently we made the difficult decision to temporarily close the doors of the WAAM. We will be maintaining our already vibrant social media presence as usual, but the facility will remain closed until it is determined safe to re-open as we take appropriate measures to protect the health of our staff and the general public. 

Please note that at this time responses to inquiries, emails and requests may be delayed. If you have immediate concerns please contact us at info@woodstockart.org 

The health of our visitors, supporters, students and staff is of utmost priority as we navigate the evolving Coronavirus situation. WAAM is following the recommendations offered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, as well as state and local governments, to protect our community and to limit the spread of the virus. Additional information on prevention measures can be found on the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/Coronavirus/

We know how strong the creative spirit of Woodstock is, and how in difficult times we need art more than ever. The WAAM has been here for 100 years, and rest assured, we are still here, and will be here for our community in the future. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and be back in touch with you via email soon regarding potential reopening plans. We trust that by working together to respond to the enormity of this situation we will be able to heal collectively in the future. Thank you for your understanding and patience. We look forward to seeing everyone back at WAAM, healthy and safe!

These are uncertain times, but we are all in this together. Please stay safe, stay engaged.

With well wishes,

The WAAM Board of Directors & Staff
