To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Thunder Bay Art Gallery is temporarily closed to the public, beginning Monday, MARCH 16 at 5 PM until further notice. Currently scheduled events and programs are cancelled and/or rescheduled for a later date.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Our priority is to protect and support our visitors, staff, and volunteers. We are committed to doing our part in reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, we are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on our website and social media accounts.

We will continue to monitor the situation daily and listen to the advice of the Thunder Bay District Health Unit, Ontario Ministry of Health, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Health Units in Thunder Bay at the time of this notice maintain that there have been NO cases of COVID-19 in the community. It’s important to note that Canadian health officials continue to advise that the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains low.

As a non-profit arts organization, the Thunder Bay Art Gallery is grateful for your continued support and understanding. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Gallery again.
