The Society of Illustrators to temporarily close

The Society of Illustrators will temporarily close starting Saturday, March 14.

In the interest of safety for our staff and visitors, the Society of Illustrators has made the hard decision to temporarily close our headquarters to the public starting this Saturday March 14th. We have no known cases of staff testing positive for Coronavirus at this time.

We will review our closure on a weekly basis until New York City health officials and the Centers for Disease Control announce an improvement on the situation. Next week’s events have been canceled and we will be reviewing future events on a week-by-week basis. Sketch Night has been canceled until April 1. The MoCCA Arts Festival will be rescheduled, with a date to be determined soon.

While we don’t have any confirmed cases connected to the Museum, we believe that we must do all that we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community, especially to our most vulnerable members.

Thank you for your understanding. We will send updates via email and through our social media platforms. 

Please follow the guidelines that have been put forward to protect your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
