The Columbia Museum announced Thursday via Twitter that Friday's Arts & Draughts event has been canceled.
Museum officials noted that the cancelation came after concerns of the recent surge of COVID-19 cases.
Those who purchased tickets for the event will be refunded.
Arts & Draughts is a seasonal event that takes place at the Columbia Museum of Art offering guests an after hours experience at the museum with food, beverages and live music.
Due to the continuing rise in COVID-19 cases, Arts & Draughts is cancelled. Tickets will be refunded. We hope to see you again for this program in the spring. Meantime, we're open for regular visitation. Don't miss #TheIronicCurtain, closing this Sunday >> https://t.co/NmttN4QDrE pic.twitter.com/SVl3D4GxUN— Columbia Museum of Art (@ColaMuseum) September 9, 2021
