Dear Friends of the Art Museum of South Texas,

The Officers of the AMST Board of Trustees have made the decision to close the Museum for one week beginning Sunday, March 15th in order to adhere to the National and State directives calling for social distancing to stop the spread of COVID-19. I assure you this was a difficult decision, but the safety of our staff, volunteers, members and visitors is always our first priority.

During this time, the Museum location of Hester’s Café will be closed. I encourage you all to visit them at either their Six Points or Lamar Park sites and let them feel your love and support.

We will continue to keep you informed through our website and social media. It is our hope that this action will help add to the continued good health of our community. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to opening our doors soon so we can continue to provide vital cultural offerings in South Texas.
