This week, Minnesota is taking extra steps to prevent the growing spread of COVID-19.
In accordance with these measures, the following changes will take place:
NO SUNDAY ARTS MARKET
Arts Markets demonstrated that there’s opportunity to engage in the arts outdoors at WBCA’s campus. Public art installations will remain on-site, available all winter. However, gathering on Sunday afternoons with retail and artists’ wares will be canceled.
Holiday gift pickup times will be announced in December, so you can still get your hands on a variety of gifts like the Arts & Eats community cookbook.
IN PERSON CLASSES SUSPENDED
In person classes will be suspended in accordance with these guidelines. Refunds are being processed for those who already signed up for in person classes included in the Winter 2020 catalog.
Construction is in progress at WBCA and will limit use of the building, already closed to the public. Fortunately, there will still be video recording studio space available for teaching artists, so nothing will stop the diverse array of online arts classes available this winter.
Art as Healing
Art is a vital part of the journey through this pandemic. If you need help navigating the resources available or would like to talk to someone at WBCA, you can still call 651-407-0597 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a staff member will connect with you.

White Bear Center for the Arts will remain a place for all by being safe for all. Thank you for adapting to these circumstances, so all may return when conditions allow.
