The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) announces the continuation of a phased re-opening of the Museum. In this second phase, the Museum welcomes visitors back to its changing exhibition and permanent collection galleries in addition to its Caddell Sculpture Garden which reopened in mid-August. The dates of future phases—the e-opening of ArtWorks and the Museum’s café—have yet to be decided. On Thursday, October 15—after six months of pandemic-necessitated closure—the MMFA reopens its doors to the changing exhibition Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence, to its refreshed permanent collection galleries, and welcomes visitors to be a part of our first in-person programming outside in the Caddell Sculpture Garden.
