The Briscoe Western Art Museum will hold virtual exhibition and sale. The museum shared a statement, similar to what many organizations are having to do, on this move:
“The safety and well-being of our visitors, members, staff, and our community is our top priority. Due to continued health concerns and local, state and national guidance and emergency orders, the Briscoe Western Art Museum’s campus, including all galleries, the McNutt Sculpture Garden and the Jack Guenther Pavilion are temporarily closed until further notice.”

The closure also applies to the museum’s annual Night of Artists Exhibition and Sale, with all opening weekend events cancelled. The Briscoe is excited to bring Night of Artists to life like never before, bringing it online through a virtual exhibition and sale. With 295 works from 80 of the world’s top contemporary Western artists, the 2020 Night of Artists Exhibition and Sale is bigger and brighter than ever before and we look forward to sharing it for everyone to enjoy. For details, follow the Briscoe online and through social media.
Our staff is continuously monitoring the situation and will follow the updates and guidelines issued by health officials. We will continue to keep you informed about the Briscoe and look forward to welcoming everyone to explore the museum again as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued support.
