This page serves as a resource to provide up-to-date information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and how the School of Art is responding. We will update this page with each new development.
In light of the current situation with COVID-19, the UArizona School of Art is following University recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect you and our community. We have made several difficult decisions with respect to exhibitions and building access that are outlined below. Also below are a few reminders, included for quick reference.
- All School of Art buildings and facilities are closed. President Robbins has requested all students remain off campus for the remainder of the semester and federal/CDC guidelines, as well as local mandates, restrict group gatherings.
- All University of Arizona courses have been moved online for the remainder of the semester, including studio courses. Students should be interacting with their instructors and classmates virtually as of March 18, 2020.
- If you are doing an internship on or off campus, please work with your supervisor to make accommodations. If your internship work is canceled, work with your faculty sponsor to find other work directives.
- We are moving our annual BFA Exhibition to an online format and exploring the best way to showcase your amazing work.
- School of Art Advisors are meeting students remotely. Contact your advisor via email to set up an appointment.
- Undergraduate students who have materials in School of Art lockers are able to keep their materials in their lockers until access to buildings is restored.
- We have suspended all tours of School of Art buildings and facilities. We will resume tours as soon as we are able.
- School of Art staff are actively checking emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org answering phone calls at 520-621-7570 Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. MST (Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time).

We at the School of Art understand much of this is disappointing and disruptive. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility during these extenuating circumstances.Original story
