The Arts Respond to COVID-19

During the current pandemic, we are all finding ways to respond to the new reality of our constrained lives. For those of us in the arts community, the loss of human communion through the arts hits hard. Ever creative, artists and arts organizations are searching for ways to maintain connection and share the profound joys that bind us together through art.

We aim to highlight the creativity of our field in these listings of streaming performances, virtual exhibitions, and media reports of the ways in which the crisis is affecting the arts community – and the ways in which artists and arts organizations are responding. We are also tracking community resources to support artists and arts organizations in these difficult times.

We hope you find these useful, enlightening, and even inspiring. We welcome your contributions to this list – please email us at with items you’d like to share.
