COVID-19 Precautions

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority.

Mark Arts is taking steps consistent with guidance from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Centers for Disease Control in making our facility safe for our employees and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark Arts is open by appointment only. Call 316-634-ARTS to make your appointment.

For gallery visitors, our hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The first hour open is reserved for senior citizens and those who are immunocompromised. We will be limiting visitors to 25% of our capacity or as directed by local officials. Outside food is not permitted.

Students do not need appointments; their class registration will serve that purpose.

If you are feeling sick or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, including having a fever, you should not visit Mark Arts.

By entering Mark Arts, you agree to our Code of Conduct during the pandemic:

*Facial coverings are required
