Welcome to Wichita State University's Edwin A. Ulrich Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
We are thrilled to have visitors back in our galleries and ask that you review the safety protocol guidelines and visitor guidelines to be sure to have the best possible experience at the Ulrich.
Self-Checks Before Coming to Campus
All members of the campus community should monitor their health, check their temperature each day and use the COVID-19 Self-Observation Questionnaire before coming to campus. For more information on what to do if you have symptoms or think you have been exposed, please visit Student Health’s website or contact your health care provider.
Students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to maintain a distance of 6 feet between individuals to the greatest extent possible. Classrooms and common spaces such as the Rhatigan Student Center and Shocker Hall Dining have already been reconfigured to support social distancing. Building and classroom entrances and exits may be designated in/out to promote social distancing and coordinate traffic flow. Stairwells may also be designated as one-way up or down traffic to reduce close contact. Elevators have been designated as a place of potential close contact and occupancy may be limited. Individuals should use the stairs whenever possible. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer upon departing an elevator.
Students, faculty, staff and visitors must wear face masks or face coverings over their mouths and noses while on Wichita State University campuses in all hallways, public spaces, classrooms and other common areas of campus buildings when 6 feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained or unless walking alone outdoors or working alone in a personal office space; are in their individual room, suite, or apartment in campus housing; or are eating/drinking in a designated area (i.e., RSC, Shocker Dining, etc.). There are certain exceptions to this policy including, but not limited to children 5 years or younger, or those individuals who have documented disabilities (including mental health) that would prohibit the use of a face mask or face covering. If you need a mask, you can purchase reusable masks from the Shocker Store in Braeburn Square.
Public Gathering Capacities
Gathering size limits may be limited based on federal, state, or local public health and governmental guidance. Gatherings are currently limited to groups of up to 15 “commonly known” individuals. Groups of commonly known individuals must be located at least 6 feet away from other groups at all times. If individuals are not commonly known to one another, they must maintain 6 feet of distance with only infrequent or incidental moments of closer proximity.
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols
Facilities Services is providing daily cleaning and disinfecting for all classroom spaces, common areas and public spaces. Hand sanitizer will be available in each building for use by anyone.
Food & Drink
Food and drink are only permitted in the Museum lobby. They are prohibited in the galleries.
Backpacks, large bags, and umbrellas must be stored in lockers available on the first and second floors of the Museum. Please speak to the Reception Desk or Second Floor Gallery Guard for assistance.
Sketching & Writing
We encourage visitors to sketch and write in the galleries using pencil. All other media are prohibited. Pencils and writing/drawing boards are available at the Front Desk.
We welcome non-flash photography for personal use and with the expectation that images will be used in a way that is consistent with the rights of the artists. Selfie sticks are not allowed.
