Visitor Guidelines

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.

Safety Protocol

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. 

Social Distancing

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.

Face Coverings

Students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to wear face masks or face coverings over their mouths and noses while in the Museum.

Public Gathering Capacities

Gathering size limits may be limited based on federal, state, or local public health and governmental guidance.
