ASU Museum is Closing to Visitors through April

March 18, 2020


JONESBORO – Effective immediately, Arkansas State University Museum will not be open for visitors and tour groups as part of the university’s response to the national coronavirus pandemic. 

This is one of the steps the university is taking in response to federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations aimed at reducing or eliminating the spread of COVID-19.

Dr. Marti Allen, director of the Museum, said the staff has been busy preparing the 34th annual Through a Child’s Eyes (TACE) art exhibition, which was scheduled to open early next month.  Area pre-K through grade 8 children have submitted their work to the annual competition.

“This year, because of the special circumstances we are facing, we are developing another plan for recognizing TACE participants and the award winners,” Allen said.  “We will announce those plans as soon as we can finalize details.”

A panel of judges reviews the children’s artwork and picks the top three works of art in each grade, and then the Museum’s curators select one piece as the Charlott Jones Best In Show.  This award recognizes the former museum director who founded TACE.

The schedule change will continue throughout March and April, and perhaps longer if necessary. For more details, contact Jill Kary ([email protected]), ASU Museum’s curator of education, at 870-972-2074.
