COVID-19 Safety Update

The ARTS Council is committed to serving artists and the arts community. Service extends beyond simply providing opportunities and resources. It requires thinking of the artist, and all members of our community, as whole people with needs and vulnerabilities. Therefore, as the COVID 19 rates rise in our service region, we require all visitors to the gallery or offices to wear a mask. Furthermore, for the time being, all indoor programs will require both attendees and artists to wear masks and provide proof of vaccination. To find the nearest vaccination site, visit: vaccines.gov. If you have concerns or questions about our approach to the developing COVID situation, please contact Connie at director@eARTS.org or 607-962-1332.
