What You Need to Know About COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This page will be updated regularly with relevant information for the Anderson Ranch Arts Center community.

Anderson Ranch Arts Center continues to closely monitor the public health situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, visitors and staff during this stay-at-home order.

Right now, the campus is closed through the stay-at-home order and our staff is working remotely. Please call 970-923-3181 for additional information.

We are considering current programming, events and workshops on a case-by-case basis. At this time, traditional 2020 Summer Workshops are being restructured to accommodate online learning. Large-scale, on-campus workshops will resume in 2021. Some smaller, custom workshops may be offered on campus in the meantime. Beyond that, our team is making determinations on any other programming which will be postponed and will update our community accordingly. Note: we are making many of our public programs virtual when possible (see our Events page for details).

We are still preparing for a dynamic summer and adding some efforts around on-campus sanitation, prevention and monitoring alongside the sanitation measures and precautions we already have in place. This ensures your experience on campus is as safe and comfortable as possible. We have also updated our cancelation policy for Summer 2020.

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment states that there are confirmed cases in Colorado and Pitkin County. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis mandated a stay-at-home order on March 26 to protect public health and our vulnerable populations, and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The State encourages residents and visitors to take precautions to prevent transmission of COVID-19. The safety of our travelers and residents is our highest priority. The State encourages those most at risk — older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions — to take stronger precautions to avoid infection, including postponing non-essential travel.
