The Gund


COVID Reopening Press Release

The Gund Gallery is pleased to welcome visitors back into our gallery space to view our fall 2020 exhibitions starting Friday, August 28, 2020. After careful consideration of the health and safety of our staff and patrons, and under the guidance of Kenyon College and the Responsible RestartOhio plan, we will begin to offer weekly open hours. Making exhibitions available to our community is important and central to our mission of fostering transformative experiences with contemporary art.

Your visit to the Gund Gallery may be different from previous years. Staff will follow detailed protocols designed to keep everyone safe. These will include limiting gallery capacity, requiring face coverings for all visitors and staff, and implementing social distancing guidelines, along with increased cleaning of all high-touch surfaces and the addition of hand sanitizing stations.

At this time, we will not be able to accommodate tours for large groups, and we are not scheduling in-person public programs as we have in the past. We hope to offer tours and public events again soon and will make an announcement when this changes. In the meantime, staff are planning an array of activations that community members can engage with no matter where they may be.

Read about these measures, learn how best to prepare for your visit, and see more about our fall exhibitions on the Planning Your Visit page on our website.

If you have questions about the Gallery’s reopening, specific concerns, or need to inquire about special accommodations, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Gallery staff can be reached by emailing us at or leaving a message at 740-427-5972.

As always, we hope to see you again soon at the Gund Gallery.
