AGGV COVID-19 UPDATE
Dear visitors, friends and colleagues of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria:
We are so pleased to announce that we have re-opened our doors to the public after closing our doors on March 17 due to restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of COVID 19. To offer the public an opportunity to enjoy time spent with art and to celebrate the re-opening, the AGGV will offer free admission to all visitors until July 5, 2020.
During the closure, the AGGV has offered a wide-range of virtual programming to engage the public. Many of these virtual programs, including the nationwide on-line program FieldTrip.art will remain in place to offer art to those who would prefer to stay at home.
Please also note the following:
• Please check our website for hours of operation – due to COVID-19 our regular hours may be impacted.
• We will continue to be closed on Mondays until further notice.
• There will be a moratorium on external facility rentals until Phase 4 of the BC Restart Plan.
• Social distancing measures will still be in place in the galleries.
• Appointment only basis for meetings with staff and Art Rental & Sales.
• The Mansion will be closed until further notice.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
