Staying Safe: COVID-19 Information

Abrons Arts Center will be closed until further notice.


The team at Abrons Arts Center continues to monitor the evolving concerns surrounding COVID-19. We are carefully following guidance from city and state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As a community center that aims to bring people together, we also take the health of our visitors extremely seriously. As you may know, New York’s statewide stay-at-home order requires we cancel all non-essential gatherings. In light of these precautionary measures, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the remainder of our Spring season. This includes the following performances:

Rainbow Shoe Repair: An Unexpected Theater of Flyness will no longer hold gallery hours
• Autumn Knight’s M _ _ _ E R
• Emily Johnson/Catalyst’s Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter
• Transport Group’s Unsinkable Molly Brown
• Embaci and Dasychira’s Seasons in a Quasar
• Antonio Ramos’ El Pueblo de los Olvidados Part 1
• Alexandra Tatarsky [SIGN FELT] Sad Boys in Harpy Land
• Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste’s Get Low (Black Square)
2019 – 2020 AIRspace Visual Artist Residency Exhibition
Molly Poerstel’s Bottom feeder
• CENO’s O.P.F.M.P. (Only Patience For My People)


If you purchased a ticket to any of these events you may receive a full refund for the price of the ticket or please consider making your ticket purchase a donation.

Please be sure to check our website and social media channels for the latest information regarding COVID-19 and further updates about programming, as well as the CDC’s website for updates on health and safety best practices.


In order to curb the transmission of COVID-19, the Department of Education has opted to close schools through April 20th. Following suit, we have decided to suspend on-site classes until further notice.

For group classes we are exploring possibilities for make-up classes later in the semester but, due to the fast-moving nature of this health crisis, we are making decisions as information becomes available.  In turn, we will keep you informed as the situation evolves.

We are currently working with private lesson teachers to set up remote learning options during this period. We are making every effort to continue providing arts education in spite of current circumstances. If you have not heard from your private lesson teacher, please reach out to them at this time.

If you have questions or concerns about Abrons classes, please email Randy Luna ( or Millie Kapp (

We will be in close contact over the coming weeks to keep you informed as the situation evolves.
