Classes cancelled, events postponed

Published Friday, March 13, 2020

In the interest of protecting the well-being of our staff, volunteers, members, and visitors, The Trout Museum of Art is closing to the public until further notice, cancelling classes, and postponing events including Jazz at the Trout presents Reggie and Mardra Thomas (03/19) and Art After Dark (03/26).


The decision to temporarily close is in response to the growing effort to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) though social distancing and avoiding large gatherings of people.


There is nothing more important than the health, safety, and happiness of every person who comes through our doors.


Everyone can help prevent the spread of illness in our community with a few simple and effective everyday actions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control:


  • Visitors who are sick or feel unwell, please stay home.
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and continue to rely on trusted sources of information such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and Outagamie County Health Department for guidance on precautions and best practices.


As the COVID-19 situation in our region develops, we will continue to adapt to circumstances as needed. We will be posting updates to the TMA social media accounts and
