Thursday 3/26

Due to the concerns around COVID-19, we are temporarily closed. We will reopen when it’s safe to do so, taking our cue from the government, health department & CDC.

Monday 3/16

Due to the concerns around COVID-19, we have made the decision to temporarily close starting tomorrow, March 17 through March 31. This means the building will be closed as well as our ongoing and upcoming classes during that time. If you’re already signed up for a class this month, our registrar Cindy will be emailing you about the specifics.

It saddens us to close our creative space to everyone for the time being, but we strongly believe it is the correct step to helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community. As the situation is constantly developing, we are staying on top of updates from public health agencies in order to respond accordingly. In order to see our latest updates, you may refer to our blog post.

Our hearts go out to all of those being affected through this time. If you would like to support the J during our closure, please consider making a donation or becoming a member. Creating and experiencing art gives individuals a sense of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment, as well as adding balance to our lives. We can’t wait to open our doors back up to create more opportunities for the community to engage in the arts, for that is precisely why this nonprofit was started in 2012.

Our Facebook and Instagram will still be active, showcasing some of the beautiful art and vibrancy of our current Spring Exhibits.

Thank you for your support and flexibility while we make adjustments. It’s warmed our hearts how the community has reached out and helped assist in making everyone feel safe.

Following up with our last statement regarding concerns about COVID-19, we’d like to assure you that we are still monitoring the situation closely. We are still following the recommendations from the Whatcom County Health Department, Washington State Department of Health, and Center for Disease Control (CDC). There is hand sanitizer provided around the building and our staff is disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, handles, and handrails throughout the day. If you are not feeling well or considered to be at-risk, we ask that you stay home and don’t attend events at the J to help keep others healthy. To learn more about Covid-19, at-risk groups, and how to protect yourself, the CDC has information available at www.cdc.gov.

The J will also be taking some new measures to ensure the health and safety of our community and loved ones. Based on recommendations from the Whatcom County Health Departmentwe will be canceling all events at the J happening in the month of March. This includes Pearl Django, Corey Harris, World Puppetry Day, Wednesday Lunchtime Music, and Live Music in the Piano Lounge. Pearl Django is now rescheduled for Saturday, June 13th at 7:30 PM. Current tickets for the event will be honored for the new date, no exchange necessary.

If you have purchased a ticket for Corey Harris or World Puppetry Day we will offer you these options:

– A full refund

– Credit towards a future performance

– Credit towards a Jansen Art Center Membership

– A Tax-Deductible Donation to the Jansen Art Center

Our building is open normal operating hours at this time. All of our classes are limited to single-digit registrations and will continue with their normal schedules. If you have any questions or concerns about a class you can contact our registrar Cindy at 360-354-3600 or cindy@jansenartcenter.org

We are following the recommendations from the Whatcom County Health Department, Washington State Department of Health, and Center for Disease Control (CDC). There will be hand sanitizer provided around the building and our staff is disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, handles, and handrails throughout the day.

If you’re unable to attend an event, we will be offering refunds for tickets and credits for classes through the month of March.
