Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art
198 College Hill Road
Clinton, NY 13323
In response to growing coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College has closed temporarily for the safety of our visitors, staff, students, and community members.
The decision to close the museum is consistent with the protocols being followed by the college. Hamilton’s President David Wippman announced on March 12 that Hamilton will close the college to visitors. Students will leave for spring break and not return until the situation is reassessed in early April when more information is known about the spread of the pandemic. We thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding.
Please continue to visit our website for updates and follow our Social Media channels (@wellinmuseum) for real-time news and developments.
