An Update to UP's COVID Policy
Dear Union Project Community,
Thank you for supporting us over the past three years. We’ve worked to keep our students, teaching artists, staff, volunteers, and visitors safe amidst an ever-changing landscape.
As of Monday, April 17, 2023, our mask policy is changing per our organizational values:
- From 5 am - 9 am daily, Union Project requires masks.
- At all other times, including our public open hours, Union Project recommends masks.
A relatively limited audience can access the studio during those early morning hours. However, in the interest of transparent communication, we share this full update with everyone.
We make these policy changes with considerable feedback from our staff, board, and most active community members. COVID-19 is not over. One of Union Project’s core values is inclusivity. We strive to build community while supporting ceramic art and artists. The best way to foster inclusion in our organization is to create a space where everyone feels safe and welcome.
This updated policy enables us to provide some guaranteed protected hours for our artist members. Our dedication to the community considers the input from those we know well, our staff and members. However, we don’t know everyone who walks through our doors and their needs. So while we no longer require masks outside of the 5 am-9 am hours, we continue to recommend masks because that is in our community’s best interest. Wearing a mask helps to protect the people around you, particularly those who are immunocompromised or have members of their households who are. A collective respect and care ethic is central to what community means to our organization.
Thank you for being a part of our growing Union Project community. Feel free to send questions if you have them.
Please continue to use the Stanton Avenue entry, sign in and out, and follow our most recent COVID-19 guidelines, found at the Visit section of the website.
Our building is the perfect place to celebrate weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other meaningful milestones.
At Union Project, we use the art of ceramics to foster creativity and connections among people.
