Lynden Sculpture Garden
Press Release

Dear Friends of Lynden,

 

By - Mar 23rd, 2020 12:04 pm

Now that the “safer at home” order is coming our way, we need to close our grounds to the public. I know many of you have enjoyed the experience of wandering Lynden’s acres this past week or so, but we need to do this for the safety of our community.

Here are a few more updates:
• We have cancelled all events in April. It is highly likely that we will need to cancel events in May, too, but we are taking this one month at a time. We will be rescheduling as many events as we can when that becomes possible.
• We will begin rolling out virtual educational materials for families and teachers this week, we’ll keep you posted.
• We will also be posting virtual tours, starting off with one from artist Gary John Gresl, whose Body Farm at Lynden continues to decompose, quite oblivious to visitors and viruses.
• We continue to share resources with artists during this difficult time. If you have any leads–and I’ve received many–please let us know. If you’d like to join the e-list, send your e-mail our way.
• Although we will not be mailing out membership cards at this point, we are still accepting new memberships and renewals here. All cards will be distributed when we reopen.
• Updates are available here lyndensculpturegarden.org/covid

Large cultural institutions, small collectives, and individual artists are putting out so many excellent (and sometimes surprising) resources in these difficult times. Please enjoy them, make use of them, and remember these institutions and artists when we emerge from the current public health crisis.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Keep each other safe,
Polly
