April Artist Relief Fund Established by ArtsWestchester

ArtsWestchester has launched an emergency fundraising campaign aimed at helping local artists and creatives who are the heart of Westchester’s cultural community. Janet Langsam, ArtsWestchester CEO explains, “Artists are hurting due to the abrupt loss of work due to the COVID-19 crisis. Artists throughout Westchester County are feeling the pinch of canceled gallery exhibits, darkened theatres, shuttered museums and no artist residences in closed schools and community sites.” The COVID-19 outbreak has dealt a $3.2 billion blow to America’s nonprofit arts sector as of mid-March*and much of these devastating losses are trickling down to creative practitioners locally with no end in sight. (*2020 national survey by Americans for the Arts.)

The ArtsWestchester Artist Relief Fund is seeking donations from members of the community to help provide fast relief to artists who are suffering from the loss of work due to cancelations resulting from the novel coronavirus. The goal of the campaign is to award much needed $500 grants to individual artists who live or maintain a studio in Westchester.
