Following CDC and state guidelines as of December 15, 2021: Masks are required for everyone. From CDPH “Due to a recent increase in cases, CDPH has mandated that everyone in California wear a mask in indoor public spaces and workplaces. The order is in effect December 15, 2021 to January 15, 2022."  To maximize protection for our volunteers and community please wear a mask, even if you are vaccinated, indoors in public as San Bernardino County is currently an area with a high transmission rate for the Covid-19. Help prevent possibly spreading it to others.Visit: https://covid19.ca.gov/masks-and-ppe/#Masks-in-daily-life and https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view for more information.

If you missed reading our August Newsflash, I wanted to let you know that the MBCAC has decided not to renew our lease at Gallery 62. Due to the rise in rent prices, fiscal instability caused by the pandemic and lack of financial support from state, regional and local funders, we do not have the budget to operate two galleries. While I am sad that we have to close the doors at Gallery 62 in November, I am hopeful that we can continue the MBCAC mission at JTAG by combining the focus of both spaces into one cohesive initiative that fits the needs of our community of artists. The board is still planning how this transition will work out, so please have patience as we figure this all out. You can read our President Marcia Geiger's message here to learn more. If you are curious about how you can help I encourage you to renew your memberships, ask friends to become members, make a donation, participate in our upcoming call for work or simply show up and support our programming. Community is what matters most to me and without being present in our spaces and participating in our programming, our community will slowly dissolve.
