The Art Museum of West Virginia University will close over the Thanksgiving holiday during Nov. 21-29. It will reopen and be back on its regular schedule beginning Wednesday, Dec. 2, according to museum director Joyce Ice.

“Our regular hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.,” Dr. Ice said. “But due to the absence of students who help staff the museum, we have decided to close while students are gone for the Thanksgiving holiday and reopen again the following Wednesday.”

The Art Museum is located near the corner of Patteson Drive and Morrill Way at the Evansdale Campus North Entrance. Since the new building opened in late August, many visitors have come to view the exhibition “Visual Conversations: Looking and Listening,” which presents over 100 works from the collection of the Art Museum.
