Due to popular demand, the Art Museum of WVU will be open on Sundays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., through the rest of the summer, effective after the 4th of July holiday.

Admission is free. The museum also added extended hours on Thursdays from 4:30-7:30 p.m. for the summer months.

“With free admission, it’s a great place for everyone to experience art. The museum is an ideal setting for a date as well as a special place for families to enjoy together,” Director Joyce Ice said.

Beginning July 7, the new summer hours are Thursday through Sunday, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 7:30 p.m.

The museum is also available for school and other group tours by appointment throughout the summer.

On Saturday, July 30, the museum will host a “Family and Community Day” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., which will celebrate the Appalachian-theme of the exhibition that opened in the McGee Gallery on the ground level in April. Activities will include stories, a visit by the WVU Mountaineer, juggling, face painting, music, and art projects for kids and adults.

The Art Museum is located at the corner of Patteson Drive and Morrill Way at the Evansdale Campus North Entrance.

Parking is available in two new short-term lots with pay stations, one located near Patteson Drive and the other near the new Evansdale Crossing building.
