We closed our doors one year ago today... but we'll see each other again soon...
One year ago today we announced that we had made the decision to temporarily close our doors in response to the developing COVID-19 pandemic. When we made this announcement we had no idea what the future would hold. We didn't know that our entire state would shut down just days after. Like so many other arts and culture venues, we didn't know that we would find ourselves still closed a full year later. The last year has been challenging for so many of us, with so much lost to this devastating illness, and this is an anniversary we never could have imagined would ever come. We're at a loss as to how to properly acknowledge it.
We also didn't know if we would make it... but thanks to the generous support of all of you, and the incredible grantmakers that have provided many of us with much needed fiscal support, we're still here. And while nothing is certain, we are more confident then ever that thanks to all of you, we will be back. You helped save us, and for that we are eternally grateful.
We've used this time to make many changes to our space to ensure it as safe as possible for our artists, our patrons, and our staff, and are actively working on a plan to reopen, which will be announced soon. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and we will all be able to gather together once again. Until then, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy, and that you're staying warm as we go into this cold, snowy weekend.
Be well. We can't wait to welcome you through our doors again real soon.
