  • Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Museum is closed through at least June 20 - including Café Flo. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back soon, but until then, please visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay updated. If you need a staff member, call or email as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends
