The Art Museum of South Texas reopened today after being shut down since March 14 because of the coronavirus closures.
During that time, museum staff has been installing new exhibits and making some safety changes.
Among the changes include installation of a 6-foot distancing markers on the floor, hand sanitation stations and sneeze guard shields at the gift shop.
There are also some new exhibits, including a creative distancing exhibit from the public.
“We want to be part of this healing process,” said Sara Morgan, the executive director of the museum. “We've all been through a lot and we want you to come down to the art museum and let some of this art make you feel better and give you a healing day.”
The public is encouraged to wear masks when they visit.
And there’s an incentive to get you to visit the art museum with free admission all summer until Aug. 31.
That’s thanks to a donation from the Ed Rachal Foundation.
