COVID-19 Response

The health and safety of our community is a top priority for the Kemper Art Museum. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult decision to close the Museum to the public until further notice. We have not determined a reopening date, but we will be sure to share updates as soon as they become available. 
Thank you for helping us maintain a healthy environment for all. 

Up-to-date information on how the Museum is responding can be found at 

Join us for #KemperConnect

While the Museum is closed and we maintain social distancing, we invite you to connect with us and with each other through #KemperConnect. This new initiative—available on the Museum's Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter feeds—shares different aspects of the Museum throughout the week and is designed to spark creative and intellectual conversation around art.

Join us for thought-provoking ​interactive posts, activities for all ages, and live programs as we explore new ways to ​engage with the Museum's collection and exhibitions. Find out more here >>
