Wexner Center for the Arts, located on campus at Ohio State, is a multidisciplinary research laboratory for the arts with programming featuring performing arts, exhibitions, and media arts.
The Wex has closed again due to rising COVID-19 cases in Central Ohio.
The center will continue to provide, on its website, a robust selection of virtual experiences including films, performances, educational opportunities, and related material on the blog. The Wexner Center Store will still be available for online shopping.
The Wex has reopened on The Ohio State University’s campus with reopening of the University. The Wex’s galleries and store are open Tuesday–Sunday, 11 AM–4 PM (open until 7 PM on Thursday). Admission to the galleries are timed and require a ticket. Tickets will be available online or by calling the ticket desk at (614) 292-3535 beginning Monday, August 10. Face coverings are required in all areas of the center. The store remains open 24 hours a day online. Heirloom Cafe is open for grab and go only.
The Wex is a great place to get lost inside for a few hours by yourself, with friends, or with the family. In addition to exhibitions, once they can open fully, they’ll offer tons of events, including talks, films, music and more at the center during the month.
