COVID-19

Currently The Art Gallery and John Young Museum of Art at UHM are open to the campus community and closed to the general public.

Exhibitions in the Commons Gallery will be on view through the windows of the gallery only. We believe that this is the best decision in order to protect the health and safety of our staff and visitors and to support local, national, and international efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

We will announce our re-opening to the general public and look forward to your visit. Please check this link for the latest on visiting the campus during the pandemic.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
