Willamette University has decided to immidiately close the Hallie Ford Museum of Art to observe Governor Brown’s newest mandate to control COVID-19. Our museum joins other museums across our region who are temporarily closing through at least December 2.
The Maribeth Collins Director John Olbrantz says, "As we move forward through these difficult times together, I remain hopeful that these new measures will give us the much needed opportunity to control the number of cases and ensure the safety of all."
