Winston-Salem, NC — In order to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in North Carolina, and in accordance with the closing of public sites by the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, SECCA’s buildings, galleries, and grounds have closed until further notice. All SECCA events, programs, and tours have been canceled during this time.

The safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. We encourage all persons to maintain social distancing whenever possible and to continue to wash hands, utilize hand sanitizer, and practice proper respiratory etiquette in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

SECCA staff are actively using this time to find new ways to serve our community through the healing power of the arts. SECCA looks forward to re-opening with a full slate of diverse, revelatory, and engaging experiences and exhibitions.

Many North Carolinians will find themselves at home with their kids, families, friends, and roommates in the coming days. SECCA remains committed to serving our community as North Carolina navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. In this spirit, SECCA will be sending out special Art At Home email newsletters with a curated selection of art activities, features on North Carolina artists, and links to free virtual tours offered by museums around the world.

Through visual art exhibitions, film, music, dance, theater, and education, SECCA starts conversations that engage diverse communities and perspectives.
