Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC)
“We are thrilled to be able to welcome visitors to the Museum once again,” said BMAC Director Danny Lichtenfeld. “In this time of great uncertainty and anguish, both personal and societal, we hope our exhibits will offer visitors a measure of hope, inspiration, and relief.”
“We have a saying that we’ve been using in recent years,” said BMAC Exhibitions Manager Sarah Freeman. “It’s ‘Art loves company,’ and it has never felt more relevant than it does right now. It’s at the core of what we believe—that we’re here not just to hang art on the walls, but to use art as a way of bringing people together and fostering shared experiences and understanding. After three months without any visitors, the art on view at the Museum is going to be really happy to have company again!”
Visitors to the Museum will be required to wear face coverings and abide by physical distancing requirements. Although BMAC is currently permitted to admit as many as 75 visitors at a time, attendance will be limited to a maximum of 40. Visitors may walk in unannounced, as always, or they may make reservations and pay admission in advance at brattleboromuseum.org.
