Thank you for visiting Americans for the Arts to learn more about the effects of the pandemic on artists, creative workers, and the nonprofit arts sector.

As the pandemic began, arts organizations were the first to close…and they will likely be the last to open. While artists and creative workers continue to be devastated by the impacts of COVID, the nonprofit arts sector also looks to be one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy.

Above you will find links to COVID impacts on the arts as well info on much-needed relief and recovery efforts.
