The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art announced its galleries, bistro, and store will be closed through Tuesday, March 31 to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Previously, museum officials had canceled most events slated to be held there, though the galleries were reportedly to remain open.

“While Kitsap County is not yet part of the Governor’s directive intended to stop the spread of coronavirus, BIMA feels a social responsibility to its guests, staff, volunteers, and the greater community to do what it can to help slow the outbreak,” according to an updated announcement posted to the museum’s website.

The announcement goes on to list ways in which interested people can support the museum during the temporary closure. Visit www.biartmuseum.org to learn more.

“We can’t wait to share our stunning spring exhibitions with you,” officials said. “We promise to keep you in the loop about new opening dates and are actively pursuing new ways to share the art and craft of the Puget Sound region with you from the comfort of your home. Stay tuned.”
