St. Louis' CAM is set to reopen on July 9th, and art lovers everywhere are greatly looking forward to the staple museum to start allowing visitors again. The exhibits from before the musuem's closure for the pandemic, Derek Fordjour, Liz Johnson Artur and Vashon High School students, are still going to be on view.
Free timed tickets are encouraged, and reservations can be made starting July 2nd. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday–Sunday, with Fridays open until 8 p.m. High-risk visitors are given special hours Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Everyone ages 9 and up are required to wear a mask.
In a press statement, Executive Director Lisa Melandri said, “We have been actively planning and training to make the museum a safe space for visitors and staff to return. Health and safety are our first priorities, and I am confident that when we reopen our doors on July 9, visitors will enter a museum that remains free, safe, and open to all. This will be a new and different CAM experience, but one that will be guided by our core values, which include being an institution that is welcoming, inclusive, and accessible to people of diverse backgrounds and needs. We continue to be a community space for contemporary art and ideas, which we greatly need right now."
