Oglebay Institute’s Response to COVID-19

Updated March 31, 2020

After much consideration, Oglebay Institute has decided to cancel all public events, performances, classes and workshops through April 30 at all its facilities– The Stifel Fine Arts Center, School of Dance, Towngate Theatre, Schrader Environmental Education Center, Mansion Museum and Glass Museum. All facilities will also be closed to the public.

As disappointing as it is to deliver this news, we feel it is the responsible decision in response to the new developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety of our patrons, students, teachers, artists, staff and the community at large is our first priority.

It is our hope that we will be able to reschedule many of the affected public events and performances.

This situation is fluid and all decisions are subject to ongoing assessment.

Please contact the venues directly for information on rescheduling and refunds. In lieu of a refund, ticketholders may choose to donate the value of their ticket(s) to Oglebay Institute. All such donors will receive a donation receipt.

Thank you for your patience and your continued support of Oglebay Institute. We are all in this together.
