NEW HAVEN \u2014 The Yale University Art Gallery will reopen Friday, with six new artworks by Franz Kline and Mark Rothko on display. Free, timed tickets, available on the gallery\u2019s website, and some walk-up tickets will be available. The gallery will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. \u201cThis has been a challenging year for so many of us, and now, more than ever, museums can offer a respite \u2014 whether by fostering a sense of discovery and creativity or just by serving as a place to come together,\u201d gallery Director Stephanie Wiles said in a statement. \u201cDuring the closure, we were overwhelmed by the number of people who shared how much they missed being in the permanent-collection galleries. We are thrilled to be able to invite our visitors back to the Gallery to experience our extraordinary collection and reconnect with their favorite artworks,\u201d she said. \u201cI extend my gratitude to our dedicated staff and to all of our colleagues across the Yale University campus. Their hard work has allowed us to reactivate the galleries,\u201d she said. Visitors will be required to wear face masks and practice physical distancing. The gallery is undertaking more frequent cleaning measures. Included in the exhibits is a new installation of African art, arranged by culture rather than by theme, newly acquired textiles and a series of 40 photographs taken by Kenyan photographer and rock-art specialist David Coulson, projected onto the exterior of a stairwell. The Abstract Expressionist works by Kline and Rothko were a gift from the Friday Foundation, honoring the late Seattle collectors Jane Lang Davis and Richard E. Lang.
