Arlington Arts Center will close temporarily starting Saturday, March 14

To the AAC Community,

After thoughtful consideration, taking into account the recommendations of local and federal health officials, AAC has decided to close starting Saturday, March 14. We intend to reopen as soon as it is in the best interest of our community, and we will be assessing the situation regularly to determine when that will occur.

All winter classes scheduled to meet next week have been cancelled, and we will keep students apprised of the schedule for our spring classes as soon as we have that available. For everyone enrolled in our Spring Break Escape workshops, please keep an eye on your email for updates from us regarding that program.

Our artist talk with Foon Sham, scheduled for Saturday, March 28, has been postponed, and we will announce a new date for the event as soon as we have that information available.

AAC staff will be working from home and can be contacted via email during normal business hours Monday-Friday. We will be unable to check the general voicemail box while we are out of the office, so please contact us at with any questions.

It is our hope that by supporting government directives to practice social distancing we can help reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our community. We hope to have you all back at AAC as soon as possible!
