The COVID-19 pandemic closed all central Indiana arts and entertainment venues.  For Newfields, that meant closing both its art museum and its popular outdoor campuses.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Deputy Director for Horticulture and Natural Resources Jonathan Wright about the decision to close, and when it might reopen its gardens and the Fairbanks 100 Acres Art and Nature Park.

Practicing social distancing, Wright joined the conversation by phone.
