COVID-19 Artist Resources

Resources for Artists and Arts Organizations

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact on the local arts economy and is unprecedented. The short and long term impacts to our local artists and arts organizations will be difficult and we understand that.

Though this is a difficult time for all of us, if you are able, please consider making a donation to your favorite arts organization; donate tickets for cancelled events; and purchase subscriptions or tickets early for future events. Every bit helps! If you are an artist or arts organization that is impacted, please see the following information and resources.

This page will be updated regularly.
