Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum’s important notice on coronavirus

The Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum is dedicated to keeping the communities we serve safe and healthy, and have closed to the public until further notice to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Kleefeld Contemporary acts in accordance with campus and state orders in its responses to this continuously evolving situation. We urge Long Beach communities to practice strict social distancing whenever possible to protect vulnerable, high-risk populations.

Please note that CSULB’s informational website contains updates on the ongoing campus response to this considerable community threat. Know that we have the well being of our patrons in mind with this closure, and we hope campus communities and supporters stay safe and calm during this trying time.

Engagement around works of art from Gyre, collection objects, and upcoming projects continues online. Please follow our social media accounts on Instagram (@thekleefeld), Twitter (@the_thekleefeld), and Facebook to stay the most up-to-date. Participate in conversations with us digitally. Kleefeld Contemporary is a community that exists as more than its site, and will continue to facilitate connection with contemporary art while we move into a more virtual world.

Final Mindful Meditation in the Museum session is canceled.


While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at our university, the illness will almost inevitably impact members of our campus community in the future.

For weeks, the university has been actively planning for various contingencies and our response has evolved over time., CSULB’s informational website is a central resource for The Beach community to stay current with our preparations and how our operations are changing.

Classes are canceled through Tuesday, March 17 as we prepare for the temporary suspension of in-person, on-campus classes and transition to alternative delivery. Online classes continue as scheduled.

The campus remains open, including the library, Student Health Services, housing and related dining facilities, and many other student services.

Alternative instruction for in-person classes begins on Wednesday, March 18.
