The Menil Collection will reopen its main building and the Menil Drawing Institute on Saturday, September 12, with extensive safety protocols in place for visitors and staff.

In the main building galleries, visitors will be greeted with a fresh installation of works by John Chamberlain, Mary Corse, Dan Flavin, Barkley Hendricks, Leslie Hewitt, Jasper Johns, Louise Nevelson, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and more. On special loan is a monumental painting by Helen Frankenthaler, Hybrid Vigor, 1973, which has not been publicly exhibited in more than 40 years.

Also, on view in the main building is the exhibition "Photography and the Surreal Imagination," and in the Menil Drawing Institute is "Think of Them as Spaces: Brice Marden’s Drawings," both of which have been extended since opening earlier this year.

For the safety of staff and visitors, the Menil Collection requires the following protocols: face masks are mandatory for all visitors, social distancing is encouraged, coat check is unavailable, and visitor capacity is reduced and monitored at all locations. While entry to all the museum buildings and exhibitions is free, reservations should be made in advance online. In addition to these protocols, the Menil has increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces and hand-sanitizer units are stationed throughout the buildings
