Cantor Roofing and Construction Project
The Cantor Arts Center remains OPEN all regular visitor hours during construction projects at the museum. Work continues through August 2014: the roof will be replaced, new caulking applied to the skylights in the north and south rotundas, and stucco reapplied on some exterior walls. During skylight refurbishing, the north rotunda is closed but the south rotunda remains open. The Thinker in the south rotunda remains on view throughout the skylight project, protected by scaffolding overhead.


In addition, mosaics on the building's facade will undergo conservation work. Scaffolding wrapped in dark fabric will cover the building at certain phases of the project, but the Cantor remains open.

Parking for Cantor Visitors
Saturday and Sunday parking is easy because A and C permit spaces are open to visitors and free! Visitors also can park for free on weekends in visitor spaces.
Weekday parking may be difficult due to construction projects eliminating nearby parking. Weekdays until 4 pm, visitors pay $2.00 per hour at the black boxes (accepts mobile payment, Visa or MasterCard, or small-denomination cash). After 4 pm on weekdays, visitors can park for free in A and C permit spaces and in visitor spaces.


The Thinker remains on view, protected during construction.
