With support from the American Electric Power Foundation, Wexner Center for the Arts will offer free admission to its galleries every Sunday starting Jan. 31.
“Increasing access has been a priority since I took the reins of the center,” Johanna Burton, executive director of Wexner Center for the Arts, said in a news release. “We’re excited to work with the AEP Foundation toward its goal to enrich life through art, and we’re honored to be chosen as a partner in this effort. The Foundation’s gift removes a financial barrier to experiencing exhibitions in our galleries and encourages visitors to return often.”
Patrons will also be able to see the center’s new exhibition, “Climate Changing: On Artists, Institutions and the Social Environment,” starting Jan. 30 through May 9.
“The AEP Foundation is pleased to support free Sunday admission to the Wexner Center,” Janelle Coleman, AEP vice president of corporate philanthropy and community engagement and president of the AEP Foundation, said in the release. “Creating opportunity for everyone to enjoy the benefits of our community’s cultural offerings helps make brighter futures for us all.”
Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Galleries are closed on Mondays. Admission to the center is also free every Thursday after 4 p.m. Admission is also free anytime for members, college students and visitors ages 18 and under.
Wexner Center for the Arts is at 1871 N. High St. in Columbus.
