New Museum Set to Reopen September 15
The New Museum is testing the waters by reopening during the pandemic.
Having been closed for six months – basically since COVID-19 began its spread through the city – the longstanding art institution on the Bowery plans to open its doors to the public starting on September 15. Three new exhibits will grace the space and run through the remainder of 2020; “Peter Saul: Crime and Punishment,” “Jordan Casteel: Within Reach,” and “Daiga Grantina: What Eats Around Itself.”
To commemorate the reopening, admission will be waived through September 27.
The museum will maintain normal days and hours of operation, but visits will be on a timed ticketing system, and limited to less than 25% capacity. Visitors are also required to purchase admission online in advance starting on August 31.
