The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes has established an Emergency Arts Fund to support artists during the COVID-19 crisis. Numerous cancelled exhibitions, performances, and in-person opportunities, as well as the closure of galleries and cultural centers have resulted in a total loss of income for many artists in our region.
The ARTS Council will use this funding to support a two-pronged approach to directly supporting artists during the COVID-19 crisis:
- A stream of paid online artist opportunities will be created. These programs will be free and open to the public to tune into via our social media channels.
- The continuance of the Emergency Arts Relief Grant that allows for artists with cancelled artistic opportunities to apply for grants of up to $250.
We are grateful for any donation you make on behalf of the Emergency Arts Fund! The CARES Act allows an “above the line” deduction up to $300 to any qualified charitable organization. For more information click here.
