Attention on-campus students!
Stop by the Mead to study or destress from studying with artmaking. We'll have clipboards, coloring sheets, pencils, and crayons in the museum for you to use to get creative. We'll also have temporary tattoos and postcards for you to take with you when you go.
The Mead is open until 9:30 pm on school nights, so be sure to stop by before the semester ends!
The Mead is only open for on-campus students, faculty, and staff at this time.
Please remember to wear your Amherst College ID in order to enter the museum. All visitors are required to wear masks and keep six feet apart from others inside the museum. The Mead has a limited capacity to ensure physical distancing. We cannot permit guests or visitors who do not have an Amherst College ID to enter the Mead at this time.
We hope to welcome our friends, neighbors, and out-of-town visitors back to the Mead after the COVID-19 crisis.
