Piedmont Arts is closed to visitors through June 10, as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19. All programs and events scheduled during that time were canceled or postponed.
However, Piedmont Arts still plans to hold summer classes. The museum also will continue to monitor the situation and may extend the cancellation period for summer activities.
If COVID-19 (coronavirus) developments require further cancellations, all registered students will be refunded. Among the scheduled offerings are:
