Challenge

COVID-19 directives have required the museum to close its doors, cancel major events, and significantly reduce staff, diminishing its community impact.

Solution

With the state currently at level four, demonstrating "improving" trends, The Wright is reinstating staff and implementing a detailed reopening plan that ensures the health and safety of employees and visitors.

Long-Term Impact

THE WRIGHT MUSEUM OPENS MINDS AND CHANGES LIVES THROUGH THE EXPLORATION AND CELEBRATION OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE. THE WRIGHT MUSEUM PROVIDES LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES, EXHIBITIONS, PROGRAMS, AND EVENTS BASED ON COLLECTIONS AND RESEARCH THAT EXPLORE THE DIVERSE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF AFRICAN AMERICANS AND THEIR AFRICAN ORIGINS.
