MIDLAND CENTER FOR THE ARTS Public Health Statement

As a precaution against the COVID-19 Virus, and in compliance with current best practices as advised by government agencies, Midland Center for the Arts is temporarily closed to visitors through April 13.

The Center’s mission is to be a cultural destination where people can connect and engage. While we will not be doing that in large groups over the next few weeks, we take that mission very seriously. As such, you will see new opportunities coming from the Center that provide the chance to engage students who are out of school and people who are staying home in art, science and community dialogue. Using the hashtag #MakeArtVirtual, digital activities and other technology-based learning and entertainment opportunities are now available to our region and beyond. From your home, you can try new activities like vocal exercises led by a Broadway performer; challenging your knowledge of Midland County history with fun pop quizzes; or even getting outside in nature to explore with a scavenger hunt, science recipe or art project.

Our goal is to assist and support families in our community and sustain our students’ intellectual curiosity as we implement the directed policies aimed at “flattening the curve” of the Coronavirus spread. 

This is a rapidly-evolving situation and we appreciate your patience while we process this unprecedented disruption to our operations. We thank you for your understanding during these extraordinary times. Most importantly, take care of yourself and your loved ones. We’ll get through this together.
