Chapala´s Centro Cultural González Gallo (CCGG) will reopen its doors as of Saturday, February 19, with activities resuming in accordance with health safety protocols mandated under the Jalisco government´s plan for the remainder of this year.
Guidelines established for cultural centers and museums operating under the auspices of Jalisco’s Secretaría de Cultura include placing “sanitation filters” at entrances, requiring use of face masks and social distancing on the premises, and giving preference to open and outdoor areas for holding public events. Guests attending special events will be required to leave immediately after they end. Group activities are to be limited to no more than ten persons at a time.
The CCGG has interior exhibit spaces designated for showcasing the history and memorabilia related to the facility’s origins as the Chapala railway station, a display of archaeological finds from the lakeshore region, its permanent art collection and temporary showings by guest artists. It is also a venue for holding music concerts, other live performances, and educational programs in the fine arts.
New hours established for public access to the center will be Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
