  • The Wex has been following university guidelines regarding masking and in line with their recent relaxation of masking guidance, masks are now optional in our building. However, those who wish to continue to wear masks are welcome to do so.
  • We have reduced the capacity in our theater, galleries, performance spaces, café, and store to ensure as much safe physical distancing as possible.
  • With reduced capacities and to ensure as safe a visit as possible, we encourage you to buy your tickets for programs online, ahead of time. This will save time at the front desk and minimize your contact with others so you have more time to enjoy the exhibition, performance, talk, or film. You can also purchase a ticket by calling our ticket desk at (614) 292-3535.
  • Heirloom Café has reopened with limited seating. Heirloom offers online ordering for pickup to help save time in line. You can also order Heirloom through DoorDash and GrubHub.

  • We are continuing with our extensive cleaning procedures.
  • We disinfect and sanitize throughout the day and overnight when we close the doors for the day.
  • Speaking of sanitizing: we've increased the number of hand sanitizing stations around our building.
  • Restrooms will be open and cleaned throughout the day.
  • Our air circulation and filtration throughout the building has been formally assessed and enhancements have been made by engineers to provide safe, clean air.
  • We encourage practicing physical distancing in the galleries, store, and theater.
