As the pandemic continues to surge both locally and nationwide, Artpace has stopped holding public admittance hours.

The nonprofit residency program had reopened its doors to visitors in late August on an appointment-only basis.

"Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in San Antonio, Artpace has decided to pause our appointments and public hours beginning ... Saturday, December 5. Any reservations made prior to December 5 will be allowed," Artpace said in a statement posted to Instagram.

"Our staff and our community's safety are our top priority, and we thank you for your continued support and understanding. ⁠To stay engaged and connected, the Artpace team will continue to bring you digitally accessible content such as 3D virtual exhibitions and more."
