Important COVID-19 Update

Dear Anton Art Center guests and members,

The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, members, staff, and surrounding community is of utmost concern. We strive to provide quality arts experiences while ensuring a safe and comfortable environment.


Due to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and in response to Gov. Whitmer’s recent declaration of a state of emergency for Michigan and advisories from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization, the Anton Art Center is suspending all programs and closing to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17 with tentative plans to reopen to the public on Tuesday, April 14.


This closure includes postponement of the following programs:

  • March 14 SatARTday with the Detroit Children's Choir

  • March 17 Annual Meeting

  • April 4 SatARTday with Meg Heeres

  • All Winter Session 2 classes (includes some classes and workshops scheduled to begin after April 7)


Students who are currently registered for classes that have already started or are scheduled during our Winter Session 2 will be offered full tuition credits, and we will be contacting students over the next few days to facilitate registration for a future session.

This decision was difficult and we feel it is in the best interest of our visitors, volunteers, students and staff. By minimizing the risk of exposure in this way, we hope we can do our part to keep our supporters healthy, slow the spread of coronavirus and alleviate pressures on our community's healthcare systems.


We encourage you to keep informed, take precautions, and stay safe. For more information on coronavirus and precautionary measures, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


Please check our website at (this page) and follow our Facebook page for regular updates, or contact us directly with any questions or concerns.
