COVID-19 Safety Protocols

We are committed to making this event safe for our guests, artists, and staff. Please help us.

If you have any symptoms of illness, please stay home.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or think you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please stay home.

Wear a mask.

As of March 11, 2022 masks are not required to visit Smithsonian museums. Sound Scene will be held at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

While it will not be required, we encourage all visitors to wear a quality mask while indoors or in crowds in order to protect all guests and artists who may be immunocompromised.

Social distance.

When possible, please maintain a six-foot distance from other attendees and artists.

Sanitize surfaces.

Hand sanitizer will be abundantly available and all hands-on elements (e.g., headphones or touch surfaces) will be sanitized between uses.
