“The Arts Center Task Force was happy to step up and provide some support for local artists and organizations,” said Steve Wiley, ACTF Board Chair. “We know the arts, from music and movies, to paintings and poetry, have provided people so much comfort during this pandemic. It is important we do what we can to support them as much as their art has supported us.”
In addition to the Relief Fund, the ACTF is hosting a series of online discussions with local arts groups, artists and performers. Tune in to hear about how these amazing hometown arts-heroes are making, consuming, and sustaining art in the time of COVID-19. These events are free, but donations to the ACTF COVID-19 Artist Relief Fund are welcome. Each talk will be hosted via Zoom at https://us04web.zoom.us/j/75880721924.
Our first discussion, 'The Directors,' was held on Friday, April 17, was attended by over 40 people and on April 24 we will host our second panel discussion, the ‘Visual Artists’ featuring Ray Castaneda, Saul Martinez, Ashleigh Rogers, and Madison Rosenbaum.
