The health and safety of our guests, artists, and staff are top priorities. We are taking extra precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable outdoor celebration.


We understand your comfort level to attend the Artful Lobster is a personal choice, and we respect whatever decision you make. Please know we are taking significant measures to ensure that this event is as safe as any trip to the grocery store or outdoor dining experience. If you are unable to attend (or not comfortable to do so), we hope you will still consider supporting the Hermitage in this season as we work to provide a safe and inspiring atmosphere for artists who are creating the work that will enrich our lives for many years to come.
