In an abundance of caution, having watched the recent increase in COVID-19 cases locally, we have decided to cancel the planned closing reception for the All Florida Juried Arts Show, scheduled for Thursday December 3rd. Our recent surveys indicated that a majority of local arts patrons are still quite uncomfortable attending an indoor event of more than 10-25 people, and in fact 25% of people we surveyed are still unwilling to attend any indoor event. Although we could have staged a reception with an outdoor element, the risks of impact on our staff and volunteers outweighed our anticipation of gathering together to celebrate this wonderful exhibition. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Court House Cultural Center yet, please visit us to see this exhibition before it closes on December 12. It celebrates the joy of our Florida experience while also touching on the many social issues that face us today. We are maintaining protocols of mask wearing and temperature checks along with a maximum attendance of 10 visitors at a time to keep our guests, and ourselves healthy. Your understanding and empathy are appreciated.
