Dear McMaster Museum of Art friends and visitors,

In response to the call from public health officials to increase social distancing together with the constantly changing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, additional measures are being taken by McMaster University to scale back some operations at the university.

The McMaster Museum of Art will be closed to the public until further notice.

Furthermore, all McMaster events, both on and off-campus, that are not core to the university’s academic mission and operations have been cancelled until at least the end of April. Our staff will continue working in the Gallery space and/or remotely as required. Administrative offices and non-public business functions will continue—and we will be responding to phone calls and emails.

For up-to-date information on McMaster’s operations during the COVID-19 situation please visit

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these uncertain times.

Carol Podedworny
Director/Chief Curator
McMaster Museum of Art
