STANFORD – As state and county COVID-19 public health orders continue to relax, Stanford University has announced that it will begin to gradually reopen its arts and sports venues in April.
In a recent notice to the campus community, Stanford said that starting April 12, it will begin opening outdoor spaces as part of its arts and athletics areas.
While it might sound a bit sorry these days, the Stanford campus has graduate and undergraduate students roaming its halls. And with the return of juniors and seniors to the residences for the spring term, the campus is slowly coming back to life.
The Anderson Collection and the Cantor Arts Center will allow the public to visit – at 25% capacity – from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, starting April 21. Stanford’s Frost Amphitheater will also reopen in the spring with outdoor movies, and during the summer it will switch to live performances, the notice says.
Stanford students, faculty and staff will get a sneak peek at the newly reopened museums April 16-18.
The school will begin distributing the free tickets required for entry to the museum one week before the opening.
The Anderson Collection will open its first-floor galleries on May 2, then close during the summer for maintenance and relocation of the artwork, and reopen in the fall.
Additionally, starting Thursday, Stanford plans to open sports venues for families and friends of student-athletes.
