Fenimore has implemented a comprehensive safety plan in accordance with guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New York State. The plans and final preparations were reviewed by a team from Bassett Healthcare to ensure all procedures and safeguards meet or exceed the recommended standards of cleanliness, social distancing and reduced contact for both visitors and staff.
Due to the pandemic, the Museum has rescheduled three of its major exhibitions which will now be presented during the 2021 season. These include Keith Haring: Radiant Vision, Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams, and The World of Jan Brett. These exhibitions represented the core of the Museum’s 2020 season and are now expected to draw large numbers to the area next spring and summer. The exact dates of the exhibitions will be released later in the year.
