The Clear Lake Arts Center is reopening on Thursday, June 18, at 1 pm. The Arts Center plans to open in stages allow for adjustments in our process of social distancing. The first phase will include the Hanson Gallery and gift shop area. During phase one of the opening, the hours of Arts Center will be Tuesdays 10 am – 2 pm (10 am to noon for people 65 and older, or people deemed at higher risk), Thursdays 1 – 5 pm, Saturdays 10 am – 5 pm. The Arts Center will use the off days to deep clean the building and restock personal protection supplies.
Along with the change in regular hours, the Arts Center will require visitors to wear a mask and gloves, which will be provided to anyone needing them. The health and safety of the staff and volunteers is our first priority. It is not always convenient to wear a mask and gloves, but it is what we need to do to keep everyone safe and healthy. The Arts Center also has many items that cannot be sanitized. The personal protection supplies for visitors have been made possible through the generous support of our donors and through a grant from the Hanson Family Foundation.
Those who do not want to wear a mask and gloves are invited to plan a visit in the future when masks are no longer required and engage with us online.
The reopening of the second level and the Sukup Performing Arts Wing, building rentals, classes, and the weekly creativity groups will come at a later date.
