We are excited to announce that the J is now able to open, following the phase 2 museum and gallery guidelines! This means the J can allow visitors to enter the building at 25% of our typical max capacity
Our Operating Hours will be as follows:
Thursdays 12 pm – 4:30 pm
Fridays 12 pm – 4:30 pm
Saturdays 12 pm – 4:30 pm
In order to be allowed entry, visitors must follow all of our house rules:
While visitors can walk around and view our new exhibits, studio spaces will not be accessible by the public. We will continue to run studios under the phase 2 social guidelines. This means studios are limited to 5 people, and participants must be preapproved and signed up in advance.
We look forward to seeing a few more faces, albeit masked, around here starting September 10th! We will be taking every precaution to keep our staff and the public safe. Our current plan focuses on taking these “baby steps” so we will be able to open safely and fully in the future!
Thank you for your continued support!
The J Team
Friends & Supporters of the J,
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 Department, we 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 [email protected].
Please consider making a gift to help support our mission through these challenging times here.
