In times of crisis, artists are often among those most affected. In addition to health concerns, this is a challenging moment for many in our community as we deal with canceled income and trying to make plans during uncertain times. Creative Capital has always been anchored by a rich spirit of community and mutual generosity, and we believe that continuing communication and exchange are crucial for all of us.

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the United States, we have created a list of resources for artists working in all disciplines, as well as arts philanthropists, and arts professionals.

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and is at home. An artist reached out about resources during this crisis and it reminded me of 2008 when many artists turned to JAI for help. Here are some important resources.

Art Specific: 
  • Creative Capital, NYC - List of Art Resources during COVID-19 Outbreak this list includes many emergency relief funds for artists. Some of the grants listed are regionally specific, however, many are national. 
  • HYPERALLERGIC is generating a daily art world report about COVID-19. They are reporting on all art mediums. The report is also sharing international news. It is short and easy to digest to stay on top of major art world events. 
  • Creative Capital, NYC - Online List of Events these are art happenings that are taking place virtually all over the US.
  • LA Artist Census - The Los Angeles Artist Census project by artist Tatiana Vahan and ICA. The goal is to also provide artists, art institutions, researchers, and the public with a clearer picture of what the current Los Angeles artist community looks like. 
  • American Alliance for Museums - Send a letter to Congress urging for the arts to be included in the economic relief package for COVID-19. Note, you DO NOT need to be a museum professional to submit the letter. You can say "artist" as a job and our members could put the Jewish Artists Initiative in the "organization" field. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT as we need money to be specifically allocated for the art and culture sector. 
  • California Arts Council Survey - They are surveying the whole are field to understand the economic loss due to COVID-19. 
  • COVID-19 Freelance Artist Guide - This is a blog dedicated to sharing resources for artists including economic relief, legal advice, and much more.
