Together: Stories of Resilience from the Arts Community in CNY

The first rounds of grants to arts organizations and artists from the COVID-19 Arts Impact Fund have been now distributed to 80 organizations and artists from across the Central New York region. Recipients include arts centers, museums and galleries, theatres, and artists and musicians. 

Many of these organizations and artists were able to quickly pivot into a new world of virtual and online programming, that continue to bring art, performances, theatre, and other cultural and creative offerings into our homes during the pandemic. These organizations received emergency funds through the Arts Impact Fund that so many of you in our community supported.

CNY Art will be highlighting these organizations and artists in a new social media series on our Facebook page and YouTube Channel.
