COVID-19 Update: Public Programming

As the past several days have brought many concerning updates with regard to the global spread of COVID-19, PAFA will suspend most of its public events through at least April 3.

Out of respect to the call for institutions not to encourage people to gather in large numbers, this is one method in which PAFA can contribute to breaking the chain of transmission in our community.

Future programs will be assessed as we move forward and information will be updated here on a rolling basis.

PAFA will issue refunds for the impacted events in the coming days.

Please contact the organizer listed on the event page on our website if you have any questions or concerns.
