COVID-19 Policies

Stamps Gallery is excited to announce that we are wel­com­ing pub­lic audi­ences to visit the Gallery in a lim­ited capac­ity start­ing Fri­day, June 25, 2021.

We are thrilled to invite vis­i­tors back to Stamps Gallery after being closed to the gen­eral pub­lic due to COVID-19 health and safety guide­lines issued by the uni­ver­sity and pub­lic health offi­cials. Prior to June 25, 2021, Stamps Gallery was only open to valid M‑Card hold­ers (U‑M fac­ulty, staff, and students).

Sum­mer Gallery Hours

The Gallery will be open three days each week: Tues­days, Fri­days, and Sat­ur­days from 11 am‑4 pm. The first hour (11am to 12 noon) of Pub­lic Gallery hours each day is reserved for vis­i­tors with an increased risk for severe illness.

    Vis­i­tor Reservations

    All vis­i­tors are encour­aged to reserve time at Stamps Gallery via Eventbrite prior to arrival at Stamps Gallery, as this will help Stamps Gallery staff in their efforts to mon­i­tor occu­pancy lev­els and facil­i­tate a safe and socially dis­tanced view­ing expe­ri­ence. Walk-ins are wel­come, pend­ing capac­ity limitations.

    Indi­vid­u­als and groups of up to 6 can reserve a time to visit the gallery. Each group will have 30 min­utes to view the exhibition. 

    Vir­tual Explo­rations and Events

    Artist talks and exhi­bi­tion-related events will con­tinue in a vir­tual capac­ity this sum­mer. Addi­tion­ally, exhi­bi­tion doc­u­men­ta­tion and video assets are ware­housed on our web­site for vir­tual exploration.
